  • Base Spirit Whiskey
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Bitter
  • Served On the Rocks

Like so many other classics, the Boulevardier first appeared in print Harry McElhone’s 1927 guide, Barflies and Cocktails. The drink is essentially a Negroni, but gone is the crisp taste of gin, replaced but the sweeter, deeper flavors of whiskey to offset the Campari‘s bitterness.

First Sips: FEW Immortal Rye

FEW Straight Rye Whiskey, a (70%rye, 20% corn, 10% malted barley) mash bill, forms the base of the spirit. However, the distiller proofs the barrel-strength rye whiskey down to bottling strength using 8 Immortals tea instead of water. Grown at an altitude of 2000 feet, in the southeastern corner of Guangdong Province, China, the Dancong oolong leaves are a real prize among tea nerds.)

Netflix’s ‘Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood’ Delivers Wiesn Watch

The six part miniseries is evocative of Boardwalk Empire… in turn of the 20th century Germany… with Samoan cannibals thrown in for good measure. The beautifully shot result is at times riveting and others absurdly mediocre (see Samoan cannibals). However, the writers included enough elements of Oktoberfest culture to keep a hophead entertained, even during the lowpoints.
