Review:

Scotch and vermouth with added interest courtesy of absinthe and orange bitters.

History:

Recipe adapted from Albert Stevens Crockett's 1931 Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Days where the cocktail is listed as "Robert Burns" accompanied by the following notation, "It may have been named after the celebrated Scotsman. Chances are, however, that it was christened in honour of a cigar salesman, who 'bought' in the Old Bar [at the Waldorf-Astoria]."
