INFORMATION

Bobby Burns is a classic Whisky Cocktail made by blending Whisky, Vermouth and Benedictine Liqueur. It has been named after a renowned Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Well aged Whisky or Scotch is used to make this classic drink and it is served in a Martini Glass or an Old Fashioned Glass.

There are several variants of this mix, which use different coloured, well-aged liquors as the base spirit. Benedictine adds sweet and herbal overtones to this concoction. This drink can be found in many classic cocktail books but its origin is a little hazy. Old Waldorf Bar Days, a book published by Albert Stevens Crockett in 1931 named this drink Robert Burns. The original drink is made using Scotch and Italian Vermouth.

  • Pour the mentioned quantities of Sweet Vermouth, Scotch and Benedictine Herbal Liqueur into the Mixing Glass.
  • Stir the ingredients thoroughly, until the drink becomes orange-brown in colour.
  • Strain and pour the mix into an Old Fashioned Glass.
  • Garnish the mix with a mint sprig or a lime wedge.
