The MacGregor

For those times when you can't decide between a Rob Roy and a Rusty Nail
2 oz Blended Scotch, Johnnie Walker Red Label
12 oz Sweet vermouth
14 oz Apricot liqueur
2 ds Bitters, Fee Brothers Old Fashion
2 ds Bitters, Regans' orange bitters
Combine all over ice and stir. Strain into coupe glass.
Has the dryness and potency of a Rob Roy but the lingering sweetness of a Rusty Nail. The apricot and bitters add an additional layer of complexity.
From other users
  • Replace sweet vermouth with Montenegro (other amaros might work). Go with only orange bitters. — ☆☆☆
