Rob Roy was a sort of Scottish Robin Hood who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. The only difference between this and a Manhattan is that the Rob Roy takes scotch while the Manhattan calls for bourbon or rye. We also think Peychaud’s bitters work better in a Rob Roy than Angostura.
- 2 parts Scotch
- 1 part Sweet vermouth
- 2 dashes Creole bitters or Aromatic bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry or a lemon twist.
