Rob Roy cocktail

Rob Roy MacGregor was the George Clooney of early 18th century Scotland. He had style, he had taste. Guys admired his outlaw ways and he drove the ladies wild. So on this National Tartan Day, to honor Americans of Scottish descent, we present a recipe for this classic Scottish cocktail. The Rob Roy is much like a Manhattan but calls for blended Scotch instead of Rye. Make one or order it, and maybe even try wearing a kilt to get yourself in the spirit. Scottish pride!
