Instructions

Build in rocks glass over ice

Notes

I've been making it with equal parts, and it's great that way, but there is no reason that you couldn't increase the bourbon by 1/2 ounce for a drier drink. Obviously, rye would work as well.

History

I simply substituted Bonal for the vermouth in a Boulevardier. It turned out way better than I was even anticipating.

  • Works with Luxardo Bitter, as well. Went with 1.25 oz bourbon. — ★★★
  • I love all these ingredients, but I find this a bit heavy. Wd love to build around Bonal. Maybe with Aperol or Cappelletti? Or sub Calvados for the Bourbon (I used Elijah Craig)? — ★★★★

Bumped up the bourbon to 1.25 oz.

Bumped the bourbon to 1.25, orange peel garnish. Delicious, on the sweet side. Next step is trying with Rye to dry it out more.
