affinity cocktail

Affinity: a natural liking for or attraction to a person, thing, idea, … cocktail.
This drink proves that scotch has a special friendship with vermouth and bitters. The cherry isn’t compulsory but it adds a little something – I think it’s flamboyance, but we all need some of that from time to time.Affinity cocktail scotch cherry and lemon
