You like whiskey ... I get it ... Here are some interesting takes on whiskey drinks that could mix it up a bit. 

The Boulevardier : 

It’s basically a Negroni -- minus the gin, plus the whiskey. Some mixologists say the Boulevardier tastes smoother and more well-balanced than its gin-based cousin, but we’ll let you do the mixing (and drinking) to decide that for yourself. You can also get creative and play around with rye or bourbon for slightly different flavors.

  • 1-ounce rye or bourbon
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1-ounce sweet vermouth

Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist (if you use rye) or an orange twist (if you use bourbon).

Interesting take on this drink, I have tasted it with Bourbon but definitely not with Gin. Hmm, maybe I'll do a little homework this weekend.  The Rye take is fantastic though.

So when you check out the speakeasy at the Luft you can get some street cred asking for this drink.
