History

The magic three-ingredient cocktail. They hold a lofty status, as elusive and perfectly formed. Three ingredient cocktails are extremely rare in the modern era. The Boulevardier translates to a man-about-town and was created by Erskine Gwynne in the 1920’s. He was an American born expat writer who founded a Parisan magazine of the same name.

 

The cocktail is revered for its simplicity but the balance (yes that word again) of the three components – each complimenting its counterpart to great effect. Think bitterness, sweetness and booziness, all wrapped up and happy.
