Review:

As Embury says, there would seem to be some sense in using a Scotch-based liqueur and although this version of the Bobby Burns is rarely seen, it is worthy of a trial.

History:

Recipe adapted from David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. His Rob Rob and Bobbie Burns recipe reference a footnote below, "An interesting variation of these drinks may be obtained by substituting Peychaud bitters for the Angostura. Peychaud, somehow seems to blend better than Angostura with the Scotch."

BOBBIE BURNS
Rob Roy with the addition of 1 dash of Drambuie for each drink. Benedictine is sometimes used in place of the Drambuie. However, the Drambuie is preferable because it is made with a Scotch whisky base.

David Embury, 1948
