VSOP Boulevardier Cocktail Recipe

The variation on a classic Boulevardier is similar to a Manhattan and a Negroni. The Campari gives the cocktail its signature red color and adds a bitter flavor. The addition of orange bitters adds citrus and more bitterness.

Big thanks to Kitchen Swagger’s Shawn Williams for this great cocktail recipe.

1/2 oz Hennessy Cognac
3/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
