Bourbon Recipe: Boulevardier

By The Bourbon Flight

The Boulevardier was created by Erskine Gwynne, an American-born writer who founded a monthly magazine in Paris called Boulevardier, which appeared from 1927 to 1932. The cocktail is flexible; contemporary palates may appreciate bumping up the bourbon to 1 1/2 ounces and dropping the other ingredients to 3/4 ounce.


  • 1 1/4 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Garnish: orange twist


  1. Add bourbon, Campari, and sweet vermouth into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
  2. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with an orange twist.
