Three Classic Cocktails

Author: Lia Soneson

The Boulevardier:

Closely related to a Negroni – the Boulevardier uses whiskey or bourbon instead of gin.

The bitter Campari and sweet vermouth are warmly balanced with the rich, earthy flavors

of the whiskey.


1 ounce bourbon or rye whiskey

1 ounce Campari

1 ounce sweet vermouth

orange twist and cherry for garnish


Stir or shake the ingredients

together over ice. Strain, and serve in an

Old Fashioned glass with ice and a garnish

of orange peel and cherry.

The Sidecar:

Named for the attachment to a motorcycle - this classic cocktail was invented in Paris

sometime during WWI. Get the sweet and sour combination perfectly balanced - and

each sip is a delight!


1-1/2 ounces cognac

3/4 ounce Cointreau orange liqueur (or triplesec)

3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice

lemon peel twist, for garnish


Shake the ingredients together over ice.

Strain and serve in a sugar-rimmed martini

glass with a lemon peel twist for a garnish.

Brandy Alexander:

A perfect holiday drink, a Brandy Alexander is a dreamy concoction simply made with

brandy, dark créme de cacao, and heavy cream. A garnish of freshly ground nutmeg

compliments the flavors ideally.


2 ounces brandy

1 ounce dark crème de cacao

1 ounce heavy cream

garnish with freshly grated nutmeg


Shake the ingredients together over ice.

Strain and serve neat with a garnish of

freshly grated nutmeg.
