Ingredients (5)

  • 1 ounce good-quality blended Scotch whisky
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • Lemon twist


To make this classic Affinity cocktail recipe—adapted from San Francisco bartender Erik Ellestad—you shake Scotch whisky and ice with equal parts of sweet and dry vermouth and a couple of drops of angostura bitters.


  1. 1Shake the Scotch, vermouths, and bitters with ice; then strain over ice into a chilled cocktail glass.
  2. 2Squeeze the lemon twist over the glass to release the oils, then drop it in the glass.
