Orchard Boulevardier

Tipple Tuesday: Orchard Boulevardier

Here is a drink for your next bonfire or fall outing.

Not only does apple cider make this drink festive, but it includes Campari (which if you are a regular reader, you know I love), spicy rye, and a good vermouth. It also scales well. You can easily make a large batch for your next party.

Credit for this recipe goes to Serious Eats. I merely scaled it for one, made it, and took photos of it.

Orchard Boulevardier

  • 3 oz Apple Cider
  • 1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 3/4 oz Campari
  • 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (I prefer Carpano Antica)
  • Lemon peel for garnish

Heat all of the liquid ingredients in a small saucepan just to a simmer, then immediately remove from heat and stir. Pour into a small cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon peel. Serve with a slice of apple pie.

Making an Orchard Boulevardier in a Turkish Coffee potApple Pie

 

Notes and variations:

  • I use a Turkish coffee pot for heating up cocktails. It is a perfect size and easy to pour from.
  • A few dashes of apple bitters or black walnut bitters would be great in this.
  • You can garnish with an orange or grapefruit peel if you don’t have a lemon.
