Classically an equal parts three-ingredient cocktail comprising: 30ml rye, 30ml bitter liqueur and 30 ml dry vermouth. This produces an overly dry bittersweet spirituous drink. Hence, I prefer the Old Pal with an even split of dry and bianco vermouths so introducing a fourth ingredient and the merest touch more sweetness to tame this Negroni-style sipper.
Created in the 1920s by Harry MacElhone at his New York Bar, this rye whisky version of his Boulevardier is named after William "Sparrow" Robinson, then sports editor of The New York Herald in Paris.
