This cocktail has interesting composition but veru familiar and annoing name. Great Scottish poet and a lyricist Robert Burns merit bigger respect that “Bobby”.
Dale DeGroff cpecify that Bobby Burns Cocktail was created at one of the great and famous pre-prohibited bar of Amirica – Big Brass Rail (Walrorf) for celebration of Robert Burns Day. This cocktail has so similar composition to Rob Roy Holiday Style.
35 ml scotch
35 ml sweet vermouth
8 ml Benedictine
Stir. Cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
Some sources specify that Drambuie is substitute of Benedictine in this cocktail. I think that is bad idea. If you do not have Benedictine but Drambuie – please try the Rob Roy Holiday Style but not Bobby Burns Cocktail.
The Bobby Burns Cocktail is one of the great cocktail with scotch, actually. It has very smooth, so sweet and aromatic taste.
