A complex balance of three key tastes that is a tribute to the Boulevardier and students everywhere!
|2||oz||Rye, Wild Turkey|
|2||ds||Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters|
Combine all ingredients over ice and stir. Strain over a large ice cube in a rocks glass.
Wild Turkey 101 gives nice spice that helps balance the bitterness of the Ramazzotti and sweetness of the Doubonnet. The orange bitters add a nice level of complexity. NOTE: Try filling balloons with water and freezing them to produce spheres/tear drops of ice...perfect for rocks glasses and very little dilution.
I'm currently in the middle of graduate school mid-term exams and was inspired by the history of the Boulevardier Cocktail; if the legacy of the classic American cocktail can survive Prohibition, I can survive these exams...and enjoy a tasty drink along the way!
