  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice cubes
  • fine sieve
  • 1 stemmed glass


  • oz bourbon
  • oz sweet vermouth
  • oz Campari
  • 1 orange zest


  • Place glasses in the freezer for 1 hour (optional).
  • Pour bourbon, vermouth and Campari into the shaker. Fill the shaker with ice up to the edge and shake vigorously for 15 seconds until an ice layer has formed on the outside.
  • Strain into the glass through a fine sieve. Squeeze orange zest over the glasses with 2 fingers to release the essential oils. Glaze the zest on the rim of the glass and add the zest to the drink.


The original Boulevardier recipe above provides all spirits in the same ratio (2/3 oz each).
However, the mixing ratio of the Boulevardier can be flexibly adjusted. If you want it less bitter, reduce the share of campari and increase the share of bourbon, and vice versa.
Cocktails consisting only of spirits are usually stirred in the glass in the classic bar. However, shaking the cocktail makes it taste more alive.
