The Rob Roy is a cocktail consisting primarily of scotch whiskey and vermouth, created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, New York City. The drink was named in honor of the premiere of Rob Roy, an operetta. The Rob Roy cocktail is similar to a Manhattan, except with the use of Scotch Whiskey.
