Rob Roy

January 5, 2012 

The Rob Roy is an old cocktail. It was invented at the Waldorf Hotel in the 1890’s in New York. Named for a Broadway show with the same name, the Rob Roy is similar to a Manhattan with the bourbon substituted for blended scotch.

• 1 1/2 oz Scotch
• 1/4 oz sweet vermouth
• Angostura bitters to taste
• Maraschino cherry for garnish

Shake scotch, vermouth, and bitters well with cracked ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry.
