The Rob Roy is a cocktail created in New York City in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan. The drink was named in honour of the premiere of Rob Roy, an operetta by Reginald De Koven. Made with Scotch Whisky the Rob Roy can be made sweet, dry, or perfect. The standard Rob Roy is the sweet version, made with sweet vermouth, ‘dry’ is made with dry vermouth and a ‘perfect’ is made with equal parts sweet and dry vermouth.
A sweet Rob Roy Cocktail…..
The Paloma is a tequila-based cocktail that is very popular all over Mexico. Its history is unclear, but some credit Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner of La Capilla bar in the town of Tequila, Mexico as its creator.
A mixture of tequila, grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice and sugar syrup, some Paloma recipes call for salt to be added to the rim of the glass.
Not to be confused with the Americano, the Americana cocktail mixes Bourbon with Champagne Brut. A great party starter that is sure to impress your guests.
