From our cocktail “Shaker” App.
The Boulevardier (2 parts bourbon, 1.5 parts campari, 1.5 parts sweet vermouth, garnish with a maraschino cherry)
Created by Erskine Gwynne, who also founded a monthly magazine in Paris called Boulevardier. Gwynne was a member of the Vanderbilt family and Boulvardier focussed on the lighter side of Paris life between the wars – “He will not tell one-tenth of what he really knows” was their intriguing catch-phrase. As a marketing strategy, however, it didn’t really work and the magazine closed in 1932.
Ritz Sidecar (5 parts cognac, 3 parts cointreau, 2 parts lemon juice)
Using the rarest Champagne Cognac and Cointreau this drink makes it into the list of top ten most expensive cocktails in the world. In 2017, one cocktail costs $1,670 at the Bar Hemingway at the Hotel Ritz in Paris. Well…you only live once.
Fandango (2 parts gin, 2 parts vodka, 1,5 parts green chartreuse, 0.7 part water, garnish with a mint sprig)
Named after the exuberant Spanish courtship dance where the couple tease, challenge and pursue each other in a passionate duel of love. In Wigan, however, the word fandango is used to mean a right palaver.
