Boulevardier Cocktail Recipe

This version utilizes the spicy and bold notes of rye whiskey, creating a unique twist on the classic Boulevardier.


2 ounces rye whiskey

1 ounce sweet vermouth

1 ounce Campari

Orange twist (for garnish)



Fill a rocks glass with ice and let it sit for a minute or two. Discard the ice water.

In a separate mixing glass filled with ice, combine the rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and Campari.

Stir gently for about 20 seconds to chill and dilute the drink.

Strain the concoction into your chilled rocks glass.

Express the oils from an orange twist over the drink and garnish with the twist.


Choose a rye whiskey that complements your taste. A spicy rye will enhance the peppery notes, while a milder rye will offer a smoother Boulevardier.

For a touch of sweetness, you can add a bar spoon (around ¼ ounce) of simple syrup.

If you prefer a drier drink, use a slightly less sweet vermouth or adjust the ratios to your preference.

Enjoy the Rye Twist!

The rye whiskey adds a delightful complexity to the Boulevardier. Experiment with different rye whiskeys and ratios to discover your perfect balance of spice, sweetness, and bitter orange notes.  Raise a glass and celebrate the delicious variations of this classic cocktail!
