Rob Roy Drink Recipe
The Rob Roy cocktail is a drink made from scotch, vermouth, and bitters. Its origin dates back to 1880 at Waldorf Astoria's original location where it quickly became the bar's signature drink. This cocktail is very popular today and many variations exist including adding orange curaçao or dry gin to make a Rob Roy Fizz.
2 oz. Scotch
3/4 oz. Sweet vermouth
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Brandied cherry for garnish
Pour scotch, sweet vermouth and bitters into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well for 15 seconds.
Strain the contents of the shaker into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice or serve straight up in a martini glass without any ice at all.
Garnish the drink with a brandied cherry on top if desired.
The Rob Roy cocktail is similar to the beloved Manhattan, except it calls for scotch instead of bourbon
