When you order this drink, someone will always say "the last person that I heard to order a Rob Roy was my dad, thirty years ago". Well, there's a reason for that: your dad knew what he was doing. A great drink.
Two ounces of Glenmorangie Original, ¾ ounce sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters (preferably orange bitters) shaken over ice and strained into a chilled cocktail glass and garnished with a cherry. If you really cared, you'd go out and buy cherries cured in brandy, and not those awful bright pink/red maraschino cherries that taste really bad.
The secret to a sublime Rob Roy is to complement your amazing Glenmorangie Original Scotch whisky with the use of great sweet vermouth. For this you should have some Punt e Mes around. If not, just please don't use the cheap stuff here.Blood & Sand
What a name! What a drink!! Very easy to make as well. Equal parts Glenmorangie Original, sweet Vermouth (good Vermouth), Cherry Heering, and orange juice. Shake over ice, strain, and garnish with an orange wheel.The Orangie Sour
This is a wonderful twist on the traditional whiskey sour but elevated with the addition of Grand Marnier.
1¼ Glenmorangie The Original
¾ oz Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge
3 oz Sour Mix
Pour over ice in a small metal shaker cup and bruise.
Strain into an old fashion glass of fresh ice and top with a splash of orange juice.
