Pre-prohibition cocktails and modern twists on classics




1.5oz Rye

.75oz Campari

.75oz St. Germain

Orange twist


Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Serve up in a chilled coupe. Garnish with an orange peel.


This is a variation of the Boulevardier/Old Pal using more modern ratios. The substitution of St. Germain for vermouth sweetens the taste leading to a refreshing approachable drink, that will appeal to those less into the drier taste of the Old Pal but wanting something a bit lighter than the Boulevardier.

The RC St.G can also stand on its own as a new classic. The spice of the rye and bitter orange Campari offsets the sweetness of the St. Germain, while the orange twist adds more light citrus notes, yielding a perfect balance of flavors.

    Made this with Aperol tonight. Quite nice – my wife said it smelled like alcoholic bubblegum. Why substitute Aperol? I’m out of Campari…
