Rob Roy



Short & Boozy

Preptime: 4 minutes

Servings: 1

A Rob Roy is a classic cocktail that is similar to a Manhattan, made with Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, and a dash of Angostura bitters. To make a Rob Roy, combine two parts Scotch whisky and one part sweet vermouth in a mixing glass filled with ice. Add a dash of bitters and stir until chilled, then strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a cherry, and enjoy the rich, smoky flavor of the Scotch whisky, softened by the sweetness of the vermouth and subtle bitterness of the bitters. You'll need a mixing glass, ice, Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, bitters, and a cherry.
