Salted Boulevardier

The original boulevardier cocktail dates back to the 1920s, a creation attributed to Erskine Gwynne, an American expatriate who ran a Parisian magazine called Boulevardier.

The salted boulevardier takes this classic a step further with Jefferson’s Ocean, a bourbon aged at sea, where the constant movement, temperature variations, and salty air impart the bourbon with a unique flavor profile – including the aromas of sweet tobacco and sea spray. A pinch of sea salt nods to Jefferson’s Ocean’s nautical aging process and enhances the cocktail’s flavor profile perfectly.

Jefferson’s Ocean brings its distinctive maritime qualities to this twist on the classic boulevardier. This bourbon’s nuanced profile, with hints of caramel, brown sugar, and sea spray, complements the bitter Campari and the herbal, sweet vermouth. A pinch of sea salt is the perfect final touch amplifying the cocktail’s flavors, enhancing both the sweetness and bitterness. 

Serve your salted boulevardier over a large ice cube. This not only gives the cocktail its classic look, but also slows down dilution, allowing the drinker to savor the intricate flavors for longer
