Cocktails that complete me Dec 31, 2010

This is a variation on the Boulevardier (which calls for bourbon), which is itself a variation on the Negroni (which calls for gin; see related recipes). Note that this cocktail calls for dry -- and not sweet -- vermouth, like the other drinks.

Servings: 1
  • 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • 3/4 ounce Campari (may substitute Gran Classico Bitter or Luxardo)
  • Ice

Combine the rye whiskey, vermouth and Campari in a mixing glass, then fill halfway with ice.

Stir vigorously, then strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass.
