Maple and Scotch Rob Roy
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes
This version of the Scotch-based classic gets a New England-y flavor update from maple syrup instead of the usual simple syrup—and it turns out that the flavors go really well together. This recipe makes two quite substantial drinks.
6 ounces Scotch
1 ounce maple syrup
4 dashes bitters
2 king ice cubes (see Kitchen Tips)
1 cup ice
lemon zest, cut into thin strips
- Pour the Scotch, maple syrup, and bitters into a shaker and stir well, until thoroughly blended. Place 1 king ice cube into rocks glasses.
- Add 1 cup ice to the shaker, cover, shake well, and strain into the prepared glasses. Garnish each glass with a strip of lemon zest and a lemon wedge and serve immediately.
- If you don’t have an oversized square (king cube) ice tray, use 2 square ice cubes per serving.
