Mocktail of The Month: Rob Roy

Rob Roy

Alcohol Free Cocktail: Lyre's Highland Malt Rob Roy with Roots Divino Rosso Sweet Vermouth

2 oz Lyre's Highland Malt
1 oz Roots Divino Rosso
4 Dashes Aromatic Bitters
1-2 Maraschino Cherries

Add to mixing glass with ice, stir to chill, strain into new glass and garnish with cherries.

I was blown away with the Lyre's Highland Malt when I first tasted it. It's been exactly what I was looking for to make Manhattan's and Rob Roy's. The Rob Roy is a fairly new drink to me, but it's a staple drink in my husband's family for quite some time. Recently, my husband's grandfather has needed to stop drinking for some medication that he's on, so my husband and I set out on a journey to replicate his favorite drink (as much as possible) with non-alcoholic ingredients.

We knew the Highland Malt was the winner for a scotch replacement, so we got the Martini & Rossi Vibrante, the Lyre's Aperitif Rosso, and the Roots Divino to compare the flavors. The Roots ended up being the perfect balance for the drink, being a little less sweet and on the drier side to mix with.

Of course, this all comes down to personal preference, so if you're able, I'd recommend experimenting to see what hits the spot for you.

    I haven't loved the other martini recipes I've tried, but *this* hit the spot. I may even go make another since it sounds so delicious as I write this.
