The Boulevardier is a classic cocktail with roots in the golden age of mixology. Originating in 1920s Paris, this libation is a testament to an era of artistic enlightenment and culinary innovation. Crafted as a sibling to the Negroni, the Boulevardier replaces gin with the robust character of whiskey, resulting in a drink that's both bold and refined. Though it sounds fancy, it's easy to make and a must-add to your cocktail repertoire.

Hot Remix A Boulevardier Rouge is a twist on the classic that substitutes Scotch for bourbon, but we like to push the envelope and use Japanese whisky.
