Weekend cocktail blogging: bittersweet

with one comment

With the rainy weather in San Diego and all, something stiff is in order. Hence, a slight variation of Old Pal, which I had tried earlier with Jack Daniels. But comes out much better with actual Rye whiskey. The bitterness of the campari balances very nicely with the sweet vermouth (which I supplemented with Lillet).

  • 2 parts Old Overholt
  • 1 part Campari
  • 1 part Sweet Vermouth (or equal parts vermouth and Lillet)

Stir in the glass part of the Boston shaker, and then strain into a pre-chilled martini glass. Squeeze the lemon peel slightly over the drink and drop into it.
