Boulevardier Cocktail for the Kentucky Derby

This cocktail is a variation of the classic Negroni which calls for Rye Whiskey or Bourbon to be substituted for Gin. I prefer to use Rye, but Blanton’s Bourbon adds a dimension to this cocktail that’s hard to beat. This is an easy-drinking cocktail that packs a punch.

1 ounce Bourbon or Rye Whiskey
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
Lemon Peel for Garnish

Pour Bourbon, Campari and Sweet Vermouth into a mixing glass
Add ice and stir until well-chilled
Strain into chilled cocktail, martini or rocks glass
Garnish with Lemon Peel
