This adaptation of the classic Boulevardier substitutes Gran Classico and homemade rhubarb syrup for the Campari. It's a luscious combination; bourbon and Gran Classico play very nicely together, and the fresh rhubarb adds just enough tart fruity flavor.

The syrup recipe makes enough for several drinks.
