The Old Pal cocktail was created in the 1920s by a bartender named Harry MacElhone. This cocktail is really easy to make and includes just 3 ingredients: rye whiskey, Campari, and dry vermouth – in a ratio of 1:1:1. Some people claim that the Old Pal is a variation of the classic Negroni. In this cocktail, you have rye whiskey instead of gin, and dry vermouth instead of sweet vermouth.
