Affinity – Recipe from David Embury’s ‘The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks’
This is simply a Medium Manhattan but with Scotch in place of rye of bourbon.
So a Scotch Manhattan, a recipe which pop’s up in alarming frequency, with wonderful Scottish sounding names like Robbie Burns, Rob Roy etc.
I don’t have much to write on this, I’ve discovered that Scotch works better in cocktails than I previously thought, or at least in a Manhattan style drink, in which it pairs damn well with Antica Formula, at least if you use the correct Scotch. I suspect that for most the correct Scotch is known to the drinker, and this drink will taste great with your favourite whisky no matter which you use.
