About this Cocktail

A play on the Old Pal, a bracing mix of rye whiskey, Campari and dry vermouth, the Pen Pal is the original’s mellowed-out, but beefed-up cousin. This drink switches out the bitter twang of Campari for the citrus-pop of Aperol, while letting the rye whiskey take the lead with a spicy, whiskey-forward resolve.
