Two Saturdays ago, we began the cocktail hour with the On The Boulevard recipe from the online supplement to the current issue of Imbibe Magazine. The recipe was crafted by Lynn House of Chicago's Blackbird, and I was drawn to it for it reminded me of a Bourbon-containing variation of the quirky Teresa from Gary Regan's The Joy of Mixology. For a whiskey, I opted for Old Weller Antique for I figured that the recipe could use something punchier and overproof.
