Bobby Burns

 

Having bought a new bottle of blended Scotch I just went for the Bobby Burns, with my new acquisitions: Drambuie and Benedictine.

 

Bobby Burns #1

  • 1½oz Blended Scotch whisky (William Lawson)
  • ¾oz Sweet Vermuth (Punt e Mes)
  • ¼oz DOM Benedicitine
  • 2ds Peychaud’s Bitters

Stir & Strain into chilled glass. Garnish with orange zest.

 

This was really refreshing and good. The orange paired well with all the three ingredients, the Benedictine contributed to the spicy-Angostura-like effect we usually have in a Manhattan. This was a great cocktail!

Bobby Burns #2

  • 1½oz Blended Scotch whisky (William Lawson)
  • ¾oz Sweet Vermuth (Punt e Mes)
  • ¼oz Drambuie
  • 2ds Peychaud’s Bitters

Stir & Strain into chilled glass. Garnish with orange zest.

This was smoother and not Manhattan-like flavorwise.
Although it was also really refreshing and cleaner than #1 version.

I think I should have used Angostura bitters instead of Peychaud’s since Drambuie would be adding the anise note and I wouldn’t be getting the spices from Benedictine.

Now we have a new favorite in here!
