2 1/4 ounces of Gin
3/4 ounces French Vermouth
Pour over ice and stir
Serve in martini glass with lemon twist
The recipe for a Rob Roy – born at Moe’s Tavern in Springfield! (Maybe?)
2¼ oz blended scotch
¾ oz italian/sweet vermouth (the red kind)
2 dashes orange bitters (Angostura bitters is not a substitute here. Don’t do it.)
Stir and strain into a martini glass.
No garnish necessary.
1 sugar cube - any kind will do, but use raw sugar if you have a choice
Soak the sugar cube in Angostura bitters in the bottom of the glass.
As an extra, somewhat controversial step, add a tiny bit of seltzer water.
Use a muddler to mash up the sugar cube with the bitters and the seltzer into a syrupy mix.
Add ice cube, the bigger the better.
Pour in 2 oz. of bourbon or rye.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
Based on the classic recipe, with proportions modified slightly by John Gertsen, manager atDrink in Boston.
1½ oz white rum - good white rum that does not taste like hairspray
1 oz pineapple juice
¼ oz grenadine
¼ oz maraschino liqueur
Shake with teeth-gritting, eye-squinting vigor. The pineapple juice should help form a frothy head, like a beer from keg.

The Brandy Alexander is the easiest cream drink to make.
- 1 part cream - No skim milk allowed! No watered-down concessions!
- 1 part creme de cacao (The only difference between light and dark is the color) dark looks nicer
- 1 party brandy (as you see in the video, cognac is not unreasonable)
Shake some ever-loving sense into it and strain it into a cocktail glass.
Some people make it with two parts cream to one part each of liquors, but you don't need to.
