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 drink 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]."

The history of the Bobby Burns cocktail can be found on our Bobby Burns cocktail page.
