Rusty Bobby Burns

It’s Burns Night tonight, so crack open a bottle and enjoy a wee dram of whisky. If you prefer a mixed drink rather than sipping it neat, try a variation on the classic Rusty Bobby Burns to sip after your haggis, tatties and neeps. Slainte!

15ml Sweet Vermouth
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

20ml Sweet Vermouth
5ml Absinthe
5ml Maraschino
2 Dashes Orange Bitters

Method:
