The old pal is a cocktail originally made with rye whiskey, French vermouth (dry), and Campari. It is similar to a Negroni, but with rye whiskey instead of gin and dry vermouth instead of sweet.[1]
Harry MacElhone​, the proprietor of Harry's New York Bar in Paris, France, is recognized as the first to publish the cocktail's recipe. MacElhone named this cocktail after William "Sparrow" Robinson, a sports editor for The New York Herald in Paris. This three-ingredient cocktail is essentially a drier version of the boulevardier​, which was also invented by MacElhone.
It is the emblematic cocktail of the Peponi Hotel in Lamu, Kenya​[​citation needed]
