Rob Roy

This smooth martini that relies on blended scotch, sweet vermouth and angostura bitters is you perfect autumnal cocktail.

The Rob Roy is a spin off from the popular Manhattan cocktail that gained speed as a cocktail in its own right in the late 1800s. The use of a blended scotch instead of a bourbon or rye adds particular character to this boozy drink, often creating a lighter, more autumnal Manhattan flavor. For a more aggressive Rob Roy feel free to use a single-malt scotch instead of a blended. 

2 oz Blended Scotch 

1 oz Sweet Vermouth

3 dash Angostura 

2 drops Salt Solution (1:4 salt/water)

1. Combine all ingredients into a cocktail mixing glass with ice. 

2. Stir well, about 30 seconds. 

3. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry OR orange peel and enjoy!
