After the Jimador Re-animador, we decided to revisit one of the older drinks from the Independent in Somerville called the Perfect Pal. As a softer take on the classic Old Pal (rye, Campari, dry vermouth), this whiskey drink was quite pleasing then as well as now, yet my drinking it at the Independent pre-dated my work on the blog. I am not sure if the drink was created by Evan Harrison, but I believe it dates back to when he was working there.
