One of my favorite things to do is to bring together the new with the old. As I’m smoking the Wynwood Factory Fresh Cigar, what I see is something very new in style of production and in art. I’m inspired to pair this cigar with a vintage libation, and see how the two are both so very relevant now. After all, everything has a story.
The Boulevardier is a wonderful libation that doesn’t get nearly enough attention. It is a hidden gem that I hope to see enjoyed in more places. Often the ingredients are in the bar as there isn’t anything too unusual here. In fact, the Negroni (1:1:1 Gin, Campari, Italian vermouth) has gained so much traction and yet the Boulevardier precedes this drink by 20 years.
