Quick Fix: Savoy's Old Pal

Savoy's Old Pal & Pete Fountain a fantastic combination. 
Today's quick fix is MiddleBar's take on a classic cocktail that was published in the Savoy cocktail book of the 30s. This drink has an extremely herbal flavor to start but mellows and softens as the drink goes on. If you're a New Orleans local, head over to Cure and try their version of the Old Pal, the Boulevardier (it will be served up in a coupe). If you can't make it out tonight, this is a great drink to sip at home in your favorite chair while listening to some jazz records play.

MiddleBar serves it on the rocks so that every sip of this beverage is unique. Each sip changes so much, by the end of your first you'll be ready for a second. Flip the record and fill your glass for another flavor journey!

1 oz Campari
1 oz Sweet Vermouth or Carpano
1 oz Redemption Rye
2 dashes of Peychauds
2 dash Herbsaint

Stir and strain over a large ball of ice. Garnish with flamed lemon.

Relax Ya'll.
