Mixologist: 2 Scotch Rob Roy

What’s better than a scotch? How about two scotches?

The Rob Roy is actually a pretty old drink, tracing it’s origin back to 1894 at New York’s Waldorf Astoria, where it was created to celebrate the premier of the operetta Rob Roy. Basically it’s a Manhattan scotch instead of rye. So a Rob Roy. Get it?
