cure's boulevardier

1 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye
1 oz Punt e Mes
1 oz Campari

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I spied on Kindred Cocktails the house recipe for the 1930s Boulevardier at Cure in New Orleans that they came up with in 2009. With bonded rye and Punt e Mes for the Bourbon and sweet vermouth, it seemed novel enough to give it a whirl. This variation on the Boulevardier welcomed the nose with orange, grape, and plum aromas. Next, grape and nectarine notes on the sip ventured into rye and Punt e Mes' rounded bitter notes leading into Campari's bitter orange flavors on the swallow.
