Comment:

Dry and slightly on the bitter side of bittersweet, single malt scotch, gentian liqueur and dry vermouth sit well together in this appealing aperitif-style cocktail.

About:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Iain Meldrum at Michael Neave Kitchen & Whisky Bar in Edinburgh, Scotland. Iain’s original recipe called for 25ml single malt scotch (sweet & fruity), 25ml Suze, 25ml Dolin Blanc and 3 drops 5% saline solution.

Iain says, “The Boulevardier cocktail got its name from Parisian urbanites and fashion-followers. This pale, Scotch-based version takes its name from the British (and particularly Scottish Border) word for a man-about-town. It's also a nod to that other famous Scottish product, the Dandy comic.”
