An Affinity is a slight variation of the Perfect Martini that replaces gin with Scotch. It makes a great winter or before dinner drink and, just as in the gin version, will take on a completely different character depending on which Scotch you use.

For a well balanced Affinity you may want to go with a blended Scotch or those that are slightly more mellow like those from the Lowlands, Highlands, or Speyside.
