Wormwood Boulevardier

When I started BarFaith, one of my goals was to better familiarize myself with the classic cocktails and just be more well versed in the world of ingredients and spirits (hence, my BottleTalks were there from Day 1, every other post...) I thought the process of visually documenting my drinks and inventorying my bottles would be somewhat of a forcing function to help achieve that, and fortunately it really has. ?? So, to be honest I rarely find myself completely creating new original recipes, given that there are sooo many amazing recipes I still need to try on my learning journey (and only so many drinks I can imbibe ??). Why did you start drinkstagramming? . That all said, I do sometimes enjoy riffing variants on proven classics. For this one, I started with the unique @standardwormwooddistillery Rye whiskey (see my last post #BarFaithStandardWormwoodRye), which has a distinct undeniable bitterness on top of the expected spicy rye. What better use than to try it in the classic bittersweet Boulevardier? (basically a Negroni, replacing gin with whiskey). I added a couple dashes of orange bitters to freshen it up a bit, and the result is decidedly bitter, intense, and deeply flavorful. ? Wormwood Boulevardier ? 1.5oz Standard Wormwood Rye Whiskey ? 1oz Campari ? 1oz Sweet Vermouth ? Couple dashes orange bitters ?
