3-Ingredient Happy Hour: A Smoky And Warming Mezcal Margarita

Where the Negroni pairs Campari and sweet vermouth with gin, the Boulevardier takes a spicy, more wintry approach with rye whiskey (you can also use bourbon, but I think that gets a little too sweet). This simple swap makes for a very different drink, and what a drink it is. Basically, it's how I get my Campari in the cold, when a Camp & Soda seems too crisp, and a Negroni seems too lean. To make one yourself, you will need:

  • 30mL rye whiskey
  • 30mL Campari
  • 30mL sweet vermouth

Pour everything into a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a coupe glass or a lowball over a big rock, and enjoy.
