11. Boulevardier Cocktail Recipe

On a recent trip to Seattle, a friend introduced us to something new, two things actually: giant ice cubes and the Boulevardier Cocktail. A giant ice cube melts much slower than its dice-size counterparts, keeping your drink cold longer without watering it down. The Boulevardier is a riff on a classic Negroni, swapping whiskey for gin.

I love celebrating New Year’s Eve! It’s a night spent reflecting on the good and the bad of the previous year, making resolutions, and having nothing but hope for the year to come. And there is no better way to say goodbye to one year and hello to the next than with a glass of champagne! But I thought I would mix it up a bit this year and make Strawberry Champagne Floats, which conveniently double as dessert.

There’s a watering hole just a few blocks away from our place in St. Paul that I can’t stop going to, The Commodore. It was a swanky St. Paul hotel (with a bar) in the 1920’s and 30’s, a time when gangsters made their way through the Wabasha street caves, jazz became glamorous, and women were shortening their skirts a little more each day.
