The Boulevardier cocktail is closely related to the classic Negroni, a popular Italian aperitif, but made with bourbon in place of gin. We add orange bitters here for a citrus twist, but it's still a mouthwatering classic without them. Use a large ice cube in your rocks glass to keep the cocktail cold while minimizing how diluted it gets as you slowly sip.
