Whiskey Wednesday: The Rob Roy

Well Pioneers, with all the talk of the holidays and presents, you know we would never forget our weekly present for you РWhiskey 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.
