Campari Surprise - The Old Pal

This concoction seems far more suited to summer and ice (neither of which we have at the moment, more's the pity), but it turned out decently nonetheless. There were several variations, some of which I also mean to try and discuss in updates or comments, but this one does a good job of keeping the Campari's assertiveness while deepening it into something more interesting. The double recipe:
  • 3 oz. rye whiskey
  • 1-1/2 oz. Campari
  • 1-1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • lemon twist
Pour the first three ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Stir, then strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

(FYI, Mass Effect 2 is on the TV, and the recipe for this drink is on the netbook screen.)
