Old Pal (Jonny Raglin, Comstock Saloon

2 oz. rye whiskey
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. dry vermouth
Lemon twist

Stir with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with twist.

Willett 2-year rye and Dolin dry vermouth. Oh my goodness. After my run with gin drinks the week before, this drink was like coming home. I’ve missed you, rye my friend. As a variation of the classic Negroni, the rye’s rich spiciness, the vermouth’s sharp herbals, and Campari’s fruity, citrusy bitterness hit all the right buttons on my palate, so much so that I ordered another one right after for good measure.
