Two Favorite Winter Cocktails

It’s getting cold, soon be snowy. There’s a chill in the air, and we all need something that will warm us heart and soul. Here are my two favorites… Detractors may say they were their grandfathers’ favorites. To them, I say these are timeless.

So very easy to drink.  Very easy.

Rob Roy

3 parts scotch
1 part sweet vermouth
garnish with a cherry

Rusty Nail

3 parts scotch
1 part Drambuie
garnish with a hi-fi and a console television

Please don’t bother with a jigger or a shaker.  Just pour it in a glass with some ice and swirl it around. Excellent with good, inexpensive blended scotch like Grant’s or White Horse. (Primary malts for Grant’s include Glenfiddich and Balvenie, White Horse a bit peatier w/ the young Lagavulin and Caol Ila. Dewar’s or Johnnie Walker Red have nice ads, tho, but I wouldn’t drink them.)

Your sons will thank me.
