Boulevardier means a man-about-town. The cocktail by the same name was created by Erskine Gwynne, the publisher of “Boulevardier,” a magazine for expats living in Paris in the 1920s. Mix equal parts of whiskey, vermouth and Campari, and the Boulevardier is both adaptable and adored for its balance of bitter, boozy and sweet. Choose your ingredients wisely. The best Boulevardier lies between adequate base spirit and vermouth.
