My mashup of a Boulevardier and a Slope.
1 oz Bourbon
1 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
12 oz Campari
12 oz Apricot liqueur
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)
Instructions
Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.
History
In thinking about the combination of apricot and Campari for a drink of the day at Loyal Nine, I selected whiskey as the base spirit, and the idea of crossing a Slope with a Boulevardier came to me.

  • Use 50/50 Punt e Mes and dry vermouth — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Might try the dried out version mentioned in comments, but to spec the sweetness though foregrounded did not wear on me. Rewarding second level of complexity past the bittersweet. — ☆☆☆☆

Really excellent. With

Really excellent. With Rothman and Winter, it was a touch sweet. Some dry vermouth yielded a warm, balanced and still rich cocktail. Defintely would make again.
