A marriage of a Bamboo and Old Pal cocktail, the drink serves as a complex apertif with a bitter depth that allows it to appeal to a guest who prefers a stiffer beverage. The Antiguo Amigo is a perfect food pairing cocktail because its bitter elements stimulate the palate while the bright acidity continues to cleanse the palate in between bites. It also retains enough complexity that it can be enjoyed on its own.
