3⁄4 oz Braulio (or Nonino)
3⁄4 oz Byrrh (Grand Quinquina)

Stir with ice, strain, rocks glass without ice (down).


Initially made with Nonino, but then switched to Braulio when supply became an issue. According to Fred Yarm, Nonino is a bit softer whereas Braulio is more complex and interesting. Braulio adds an alpine mint finish.

  • Didn't have Braulio so used Nonino but added a little Fernet to get some of the mintiness of the Braulio. Good
  • Used Jim Beam black. Interesting but not a keeper. Rate 3.0

The backstory was that in early 2013, Victor Pelegrin at Russell House Tavern created this Boulvardier riff called the Man About Town. Bar manager Sam Gabrielli declared that it was so good that it would stay on the menu as long as Vic was working there. I had the drink shortly after it was created and a few months later I was working there and made plenty. Towards the end of 2013 or early 2014, Vic departed for the West Coast to raise his family, and Sam was true to his word and took the drink off the menu. Sam created this tribute that stayed on the menu until Sam left to go to South Carolina in mid/late 2014.
