The Bobby Bannister Cocktail

Inspired by the popular Manhattan cocktail, our scotch-based Bobby Burns cocktail recipe is equally, if not more, pleasing to the palate.

A modern twist on the original, we’ve recommended the multi-award-winning Hankey Bannister Heritage Blend for the scotch whisky element. 

This is then balanced with equal parts light-bodied, bitter Martini Rosso to complement the full-bodied, sweet-tasting notes of the Heritage Blend.

True to the original Bobby Burns recipe, we’re adding a generous splash of zesty Benedictine and then finishing with 2 dashes of fragrant Angostura bitters to add a hint of spice.

Stir in a mixing glass and then serve with a lemon twist in a stylish 5 1/2 oz coupette.
