The Hole-in-One Whiskey Martini reminds you of playing golf and the need to sink your golf ball with a smooth stroke with whiskey. I would recommend that you use a scotch whiskey with an age statement due the smoothness of the whiskey. I used Macallan 12 Year Old Scotch Whiskey to make this martini because of the smooth finish from the sherry cask. As you experiment with this cocktail, you can discover many different variations until you make your own hole-in-one…cheers.
- 2 oz. Macallan scotch
- ¾ oz. dry vermouth
