Dewar's All Wet on Rob Roy Recipe

Dewar's All Wet on Rob Roy Recipe
The Rob Roy is an all-time favorite, as is mother's milk Dewar's, but boy are they off base on their Rob Roy recipe. According to Dewar's:

3 parts Dewar's "White Label"
2.5 parts sweet vermouth
2 dashes bitters
2 dashes simple syrup
1 cherry

We're all for adding a little extra vermouth, but this is just too heavy-duty. Plus, with the addition of simple sugar, this version is probably so sweet you could put a stick into it, turn it upright, and then have a Rob Roy lollipop. What a great way to get the kids started!

Negroni

The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
