When you've decided to color your hair purple, you deserve a good cocktail.

A boulevardier is similar to a negroni, in that it's made with Campari, that bitter-sweet Italian digestif of infused herbs. In a boulevardier, the negroni's gin is replaced with bourbon - it's a mix of sweet vermouth, campari and bourbon.

This boulevardier was served to me at the Sazerac Bar in the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown New Orleans - the home of the American cocktail. It's a tasty thing, and affirms one's reckless fashion decisions!

I love Negronis, they remind me of the Cafe di la Pace in Treviso, Italy. The Boulevardier sounds like a great cold weather substitute for them.

If your description didn't make me thirsty (and it does!), that photo would certainly do the trick! Wise choices all around. :)
