Called a Dry Scotch Manhattan or another name that you might hear occasionally is a Dry Rob Roy. And as I’ve told you before in one of the previous drink lessons, Rob Roy was the Robin Hood of Scotland. So, that’s how we got the name.
The drink I’d like to show you now is called a Dry Rob Roy. So, what we’re going to do is we’re going to make it on the rocks. We’re going to take our rock glass, fill it up with ice. We’re going to use a dash of dry vermouth and for you students out there who have seen the original Scotch Manhattan or Rob Roy recipe that use sweet vermouth. So, this is going to be dry vermouth. This is for somebody who likes a somewhat potent Scotch cocktail with a little vermouth added to it which will give it a little different taste. So we’ve got our dry vermouth in there. We always put our dry vermouth first.
Then, what we’re going to do is we’re going to add our scotch. We’re going to add two ounces of our Scotch whiskey. I’m using on Johnny Walker Red Label, fine Scotch. We’re going to put a sip stick in there or two. Whenever we have drinks on the rocks, we want to put those sticks in there, little straws. They’re called sip sticks. So, the customer could stir it off.
And then what we’re going to do is, we’re going to put an olive garnish. And these olives are usually on a toothpick so the customer could eat it as an appetizer. So there we have it, dry Rob Roy or Dry Scotch Manhattan. Same two names that mean the same type of drink, dry vermouth and scotch. There we have it.
