New Pal

New Pal cocktail with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Campari, Peychaud's bitters, and absinthe

The New Pal is a creative, subtle riff on the Old Pal cocktail, substituting sweet vermouth in place of the Old Pal’s dry, and adding a note of intrigue with anise-forward Peychaud’s bitters and a dash of absinthe.

Just like in the Old Pal, Aperol won’t cut it here. Stick with the specified Campari, or something with a similarly-bitter flavor profile like Gran Classico or Contratto.

Unlike the Old Pal, the orange peel garnish isn’t required here. It certainly improves the drink and we heartily recommend it, but if you don’t have any fresh oranges on hand, the New Pal is still a perfectly well-rounded drink without it.



Stir all ingredients with ice until well-chilled. Strain into a short glass filled with ice (preferably one large cube or sphere). Express an orange peel over the top, then drop in as a garnish.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
