Boulevardier from The Cockentrice
The Cockentrice is among the forward-thinkers, utilizing Decatur’s Independent Distillery’s latest creation, Hellbender Corn Whiskey. I’m embarrassed that I have yet to try the spirit in its simple form “on the rocks” despite calling myself a whiskey-lover. Even so, I learned from Atlanta Magazine that, “Hellbender tastes bright, similar to an unaged tequila or mezcal. The booze is kind of hot, but in an enjoyable way.”
The Boulevardier starts with a base of pomegranate and orange infused Hellbender. Add a touch of sweet vermouth, plum bitters and a little Campari which is known for it’s herbal and fruity essence. Whiskey, vermouth and bitters make it a Manhattan. Hellbender, Campari and a touch of fruit make it unforgettable.
