I love a good Rob Roy but prefer it "perfect" which is 1 Tbls sweet vermouth and 1 Tbls dry vermouth instead of all sweet. I usually skip the bitters. Always garnish with a cherry. Shake and serve straight up in a martini glass. Read More

My neighbor tells me this is pretty darn good, 4/5 stars. I didn't try it because I don't care for whiskey. Pretty drink! Read More
