    Boulevardier Riff
    by Fred Sarkis, Sable Kitchen & Bar, Chicago, IL
    1 1/2 oz Bourbon, WL Weller
    3/4 oz Cynar
    3/4 oz Bonal Gentiane Quina
    1 pinch Salt (small amount)
    2 dash Orange bitters

    Stir, strain, straight up, cocktail glass

    The Left Hand and the 1794 variations also had some fans. I will get to them eventually!
    That Left Hand sounds good.

    I vary my Boulevardier by adding Luxardo Maraschino. Tried that, with orange bitters, but found it too bitter.

    3-1-1...just like TSA.
    that's how I remember the proportions. 3 parts bourbon, 1 part sweet vermouth, 1 part Cherry Grand Marnier. a few dashes orange bitters.
    In this case, George T Stagg (!!), Noilly Prat, Angostura
    Big round ice cube--figured it'd help with the GTS

    Still working on Manhattan recipes, I know, what I've posted before may be a drink called by another name but I think more in terms of proportion.

    1 oz Barton
    .25 oz Eristoff (a sloe-rasberry infused spirit)
    .25 oz Amaretto
    1 oz ginger ale (optional)

    Shake with cracked ice and serve chilled

    Well I had one Fred wasn't working, I am not sure if he still works there. But the classic Boulevardier was executed with perfection. I really need to up my game on that drink.

    You had a classic or the riff noted above? Or both?

    It was the classic I couldn't find the riff in the menu and didn't want to bother the mixologist more than I must those guys are always busy.

    They're busy because we are paying them, our requests are not intrusions.

    Being a professional bartender, I am empathetic to their situation, I am unwilling to take up someones time with questions when they could be making money on another customer. They are my equal, not my servant.
