The Watcher is a lifestyle and travel blog created in collaboration with my wife, Nika.



Since when do I want a blanket shelf at home? Clearly, wool and whiskey season is here and my friends at W&P Design have come up with a curated kit to celebrate. In collaboration with Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, Topo Designs, Woolrich, Huckberry, and Noble Denim, we're partnering around the topic of enjoying a delicious cocktail outdoors (is that considered glamping?). The collaboration just launched last week, so here's the link to enter for the prize package, which includes a Topo Design bag, Woolrich blanket as well as a bunch of great cocktail making tools. Keep scrolling for my favorite whiskey drink recipe.

Recipe: The Boulevardier 

Named after a Paris review newsletter, The Boulevardier is essentially a Negroni using American Whiskey. For one cocktail, you'll need an ounce of Campari (I often sub with Cynar), an ounce of vermouth (try Cocchi), and at least an ounce of Bulleit Rye Whiskey. Stir and add orange twist. Serve up or on the rocks.
