The Smoked Boulevardier Cocktail Recipe


Negroni Variation - The Boulevardier
Winter's Ultimate Smoked Cocktail Recipe

Calling all whiskey lovers!

This drink was invented in the 1920s as a variation on the classic Negroni cocktail. It is a recipe sure to warm the cockles with its bitter sweet, spicy tantalising flavour!

The choice of flavoured wood chips is your own. However we're fans of cherry wood for this smoked cocktail recipe. Remember smoking a cocktail essentially transforms the flavour. Adding smoke is not simply about the visual appeal but is another component of the drink’s ingredients.
