The Story Behind The Johnnie Walker Rob Roy
The Rob Roy, a Scotch variation on the Manhattan, takes its name from the infamous Scottish rebel Rob Roy MacGregor. Use Johnnie Walker as the base whisky, add a touch of sweet vermouth and aromatic bitters, then stir the ingredients over ice, strain, and serve neat with a brandied cherry or orange peel. The result is balanced, slightly smoky, and rich — it’s a cocktail that should never play second fiddle to its more famous cousin.
