Bourbon Boulevardier

Bourbon Boulevardier

If a Manhattan and a Negroni had a baby, Boulevardier would be its name. Created by Paris bartender Harry McElhone in the roaring twenties, the recipe appeared in a monthly literary magazine by the same name "Boulevardier". Traditionally, an Italian red bitter aperitif is used, but it can be a bit of a bully when paired with softer American whiskies like bourbon. So naturally we use our favorite bitter aperitifs, Mommenpop Blood Orange and Mommenpop Ruby Grapefruit, for a tasty riff on this old school classic.

.75 oz Mommenpop Blood Orange
.75 oz Mommenpop Ruby Grapefruit
1.5 oz bourbon
