As it is coming up to Burn’s night next Monday! We thought of an ideal drink to make for this special night on the 25th January. The Rob Roy cocktail! We always try to show you how to make cocktails that are easy as possible to make and just as importantly lovely to drink.

The history of this classic cocktail dates back to 1894, when it was first invented. By a bar tender in the Waldorf Astoria hotel, Manhattan, New York. USA.

A selection of cocktails including the Rob Roy!

Leaving the cocktail stick in the drink!

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

This is a fairly straight forward cocktail to make but also easy to drink too.

Kick yourself back. Relax and enjoy!
