About our Boulevardier
Considered by some as a Manhattan to which a portion of Campari has been added and by others as a Negroni to which gin has been substituted for whiskey, the Boulevardier is nevertheless a beverage in its own right. Invented according to the story by Harry McElhone in 1927, the founder and owner of Harry's New York Bar in Paris, this cocktail should however its name to the American Erskine Gwynne, who created the literary magazine The Boulevardier the same year. Light on an unknown classic!
