The Affinity Cocktail

By: The Food Hunter

The Affinity Cocktail is a variation of the perfect Manhattan that uses scotch, instead of rye or bourbon, as the liquor of choice. Flirting with sophistication the Affinity makes for an elegant aperitif style cocktail. Equal parts scotch, sweet vermouth, and dry vermouth with a dash of bitters are stirred and served up.

Affinity Cocktail
1 oz Laphroaig scotch
1 oz dry vermouth
1 oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes bitters
1 lemon peel

Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass and stir well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Add lemon peel and enjoy.


  1. I don't drink...but if I did, I am sure I would like that!

  2. Wow! Now that's a cocktail I need after a long day with my three kiddos!

  3. Not a drinker these days either, but this sounds like an interesting combo -- never heard of anything like it!

  4. That sounds like a serious beverage! :) I usually stick with wine, but maybe for the holidays a few sips of this would be so warm and cozy!!

  5. I have no idea about any of those alcohols, lol, but I love the color!

  6. I have an affinity for this Affinity Cocktail, as should be obvious haha! Awesome recipe!

  7. Yum!!!! Looks delicious!!
