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
Stir well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with shortbread on the side.

Add a special something to the original recipe by including a touch of Absinthe and Maraschino, which marry perfectly with the soft Speyside malt character of Drambuie 15.
50ml Drambuie 15 Year Old
20ml Sweet Vermouth
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
Stir well with ice and strain into a Martini glass or coupette.
