This twist on the classic Old Pal cocktail uses lighter-flavored Aperol instead of Campari, and brings in bitter Cocchi Americano in the place of dry vermouth. It's an easy-drinking combination.

A note on the rye: I prefer a lower proof rye for this one, like Old Overholt or Templeton, both of which come in at 80 proof.
