Summer Cocktails : The Boulevardier


1 1/2 oz. Bourbon (stronger the better)

1 oz. Sweet Vermouth (try Cinzano Rosso)

1 oz. Campari

Small round orange peel 

Add ice and ingredients to a mixing glass and stir until ice cold. Strain into a sturdy rocks glass. It's important to understand that you dont want the juice of the orange. What you want is to squeeze the oils from the peel into the cocktail by twisting each end back and forth. Finish it by wiping the peel around the rim of the glass to taste the sublties and enjoy the aroma.

To add flare just squeeze the oils through a burning match!
