First appearing in Harry MacElhone’s cocktail book, Barflies & Cocktails, the Old Pal cocktail is a variant of the Boulevardier cocktail. While the Bourlevardier is a variation of the gin-based Negroni cocktail, the Old Pal keeps the whiskey & Campari but switches the third ingredient. For the Old Pal, sweet vermouth is replaced by dry, or in this case, Blanc vermouth and results in a well-balanced, booze forward, whiskey warming cocktail. The original recipe calls for a ratio of 1:1:1 while some modern recipes have switched this to a 2:1:1 ratio.
