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.
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.
