Princes Street

1 oz       (30 ml) scotch
1/2 oz    (15 ml) vermouth
1/2 oz    (15 ml) Aperol aperitif
2                        dashes of grapefruit bitters

Stir ingredients over ice and strain into chilled 
cocktail glass.  Garnish with lemon twist.

I used 21yo Nika Whisky -- a little over powering.  likely a standard brand would do.


  1. That drink is named after the famous street here in Edinburgh, Dave. As such, you should always use a 12 year old Scotch (if possible).

    Slight quibble, but that should be Princes with only one 's', as it is the plural of Prince. It took us a while to get used to that when we moved here.

    1. Thanks Russ. Fixed :) I can't recall why I used the Nika. likely because I liked it.
