Heart of Stone: A Boulevardier Variation

Heart of Stone mezcal cynar boulevardier riff Lady Jane

A rich and earthy take on a bourbon classic.

Stuart Weaver, general manager and partner of Denver’s Lady Jane, says this Boulevardier variation was the result of a last-minute menu change at the bar, quickly coming together 30 minutes before service began. “I find it so funny that a cocktail I put five minutes of work into turns out to be one of my favorites and a staple here at Lady Jane,” he says.
