| So I decided to play around with the left over liquor in my bar and ended up making a drink called the Rob Roy. I was happy to find out that the scotch still held its woody scent but became mild with the vermouth. I’m always a sucker for lemon with whiskey so this was a nice option to mix it up over my normal Manhattan.

Ingredients

  • 2 shots Scotch
  • 1 shot sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • 2 drops lemon juice
  • 1 lemon peal

Directions

  1. Mix liquor into a shaker or bar glass and stir with ice
  2. Add to Martini or Low Ball Glass
  3. Garnish with Lemon peal

What’s in a Name?

According to Wikipedia there is a story to this drink with two first names.

The Rob Roy is a cocktail created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, New York City. The drink was named in honor of the premiere of Rob Roy, an operetta by composer Reginald De Koven and lyricist Harry B. Smith loosely based upon Scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor. (source)
