I've been enjoying Gary Regan's new book, The Negroni: Drinking to La Dolce Vita, with Recipes & Lore and the first recipe I tried was the Old Pal, which is Rye, White Vermouth, and Campari. I have several nice vermouths in my cabinet and I decided to base an Old Pal using one from my friends at Matthisasson and some special cocktail bitters from Cocktail Punks, the Alpino.
Corkdork Old Pal:
1 part Campari
1 part Matthiasson Yount Mill Vineyard Vermouth
1-1/2 parts Bulleit Rye
3 drops Cocktail Punks "Alpino" bitters
Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Stir well. Strain into a chilled glass. Serve cold and up.
