Change of Key

1 oz Bourbon
1 oz Campari
1 oz Bonal Gentiane Quina
Build in rocks glass over ice
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.
I simply substituted Bonal for the vermouth in a Boulevardier. It turned out way better than I was even anticipating.
From other users
  • 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)? — ☆☆☆☆
  • Works with Luxardo Bitter, as well. Went with 1.25 oz bourbon. — ☆☆☆
