Try this punchy Rob Roy cocktail recipe with Johnnie Walker Black Label.
The Rob Roy cocktail is very similar to a Manhattan, with the main difference being the whisky used is always Scotch. The ingredients are stirred with ice, strained and garnished with a lemon twist or skewered Maraschino cherries. The cocktail recipe was created in 1894 at the Waldorf hotel, New York City, for the premiere of an operetta of the same name – which was based on the ‘Scottish Robin Hood’, Rob Roy MacGregor. This three-ingredient cocktail remains popular to this day and is imbibed in bars and homes alike.
