Rob Roy

Recipes and images courtesy of The Dalmore

A bartender at the Waldorf Astoria created this rich, robust and beautifully balanced drink to commemorate the opening of the Operetta, Rob Roy, based on the scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor. This recipe may remind you of a Manhattan yet, interesting fact, a Rob Roy is always made with Scotch whiskey. A drink as magnificent as its history. 

Yield: 1 serving, Prep Time: 3 minutes


1 ½ oz The Dalmore 12 year old

1 oz sweet vermouth

⅓ oz maraschino liqueur

dash orange bitters

orange twist, garnish


Add all ingredients to an ice filled mixing glass. Stir until chilled and diluted. Pour into your favorite martini glass.

This mouthwatering libation pairs perfectly with buttery soft caramels. Try soaking a Blood Orange Hibiscus Caramel before you take a bite, or rest a New Mexican Pecan Caramel on the rim of your glass for an elevated sipping experience.
