The Bobby Burns was first featured in the book 1700 Cocktails for the Man Behind the Bar with 3 variations. A combination of Scotch whiskey, sweet vermouth and a liqueur – no. 1 calls for Dom Benectine, no. 2 calls for Maraschino liqueur and no. 3 calls for Drambuie.
The Improved Whiskey Cocktail is a surprisingly smooth mix of rye whiskey (preferably Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey), Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, a touch of sugar and Angostura Bitters.
A tonne of herbal notes from the always-dominant Green Chartreuse yet balanced with the maraschino & fresh citrus. First created around the Prohibition era and recently revived by a Seattle bartender.
