Well Pioneers, with all the talk of the holidays and presents, you know we would never forget our weekly present for you – Whiskey Wednesday. (Admit it, this is the best part of your week). Today we are going back in time to a cocktail that many a-pioneer have turned to for its reliable, classic taste. We would like to introduce you to the perfect post-dinner cocktail to warm you up on these chilly winter nights: the Rob Roy.
First created in 1894 (yes, this is basically history in a cocktail) by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, the Rob Roy has remained a reliable pick-me-up after a long day. Pair this blend of whiskey, sweet vermouth, and angostura bitters with some roasted nuts or dark chocolate and you will be set for a relaxing December night.
2 oz. Lost Republic whiskey
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
2 Dashes of Angostura bitters
1 lemon peel or cherry for garnish
This simple oldie-but-goodie can be enjoyed on the rocks or up. So grab a bottle of Lost Republic and take a sip of American history.
