Old Pal Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 RyeIMG_4332
  • 0.75 Campari
  • 0.75 Dolin Dry

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice. Stir and strain. Serve up with a lemon peel garnish, ideally in a Nick and Nora glass.


Thoughts:

A classic cocktail that offers a different bend than either the Negroni or the Boulevardier, whilst sporting obvious similarities to both. In contrast to either drink, the dry vermouth leaves the drink feeling a bit lighter and brighter than its more robust cousins. Invented sometime in the 1920s, this lesser-known drink is a nice choice before a meal on a spring or summer evening.
