My husband is a huge fan of negroni. He makes one nearly every night as a night cap. I’ve gotten used to the heady aroma of vermouth and campari. It’s a very distinctive drink.

The difference between a boulevardier and a negroni is the addition of whiskey instead of gin. It leads to a more robust taste profile, but the herbal aspects remain the same.

For me, there is a fine line with this cocktail. It can be very good when the chosen whiskey and the vermouth go well together. To find the perfect match, you might have to try a few.


It’s possible to use any whiskey (or whisky) you like. That might be Scotch, Bourbon, or you might also like a Rye.
