Created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, the Rob Roy is a classic and sophisticated cocktail.
Ice cubes or crushed ice
tablespoons Scotch whisky (1 1/2 oz)
tablespoons sweet vermouth (3/4 oz)
In martini shaker with ice, shake whisky and vermouth until blended. Pour into chilled martini glass, straining out ice.
For a dry Rob Roy, substitute dry vermouth for sweet vermouth.
For a perfect Rob Roy, add equal parts sweet and dry vermouth.
