This is another scotch cocktail that's really easy to make. You don't need a lot of bottles and you don't need a lot of equipment. Just stir scotch and sweet vermouth together.
What we think is extra nice to do with these “simple” recipes though, is to serve them in the most elegant glassware we can find. An easy cocktail served in an intricate glass is so nice we think.
In the cocktail on the photo we used Naked Grouse scotch and Antica Formula sweet vermouth. But any good scotch and sweet vermouth will make the perfect Rob Roy.
2 oz scotch
1 oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir all ingredients with plenty of ice, and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
