This cocktail was famously crafted by Harry MacElhone of Harry’s Bar in Paris. It is said to be named after his “old pal”, William “Sparrow” Robertson. Similar to the highly popular Boulevardier, but a bit drier as a result of the mix of rye, Campari & dry vermouth in place of the sweet. This cocktail is great for those cocktail enthusiasts keen on the Negroni.
