The Hole-In-One combines a couple of items I don’t normally think of together: scotch and vermouth. In fact, it’s almost like a martini with scotch instead of gin or vodka – but not quite.

Hole-In-One drink in cocktail glass

The vermouth – combined with the marrying ingredients, orange bitters and just a touch of lemon juice – brings out the fruity notes in the scotch, but very subtly. That makes it a nice choice when you’re in the mood for a switch from martinis or plain scotch.


  • 1 3/4 ounces scotch
  • 3/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Dash of orange bitters

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass.
