Today we’re making the Tartan Cocktail! This is a new scotch drink recipe for you to try at home. If you like Rob Roys and Rusty Nails – I really think you’ll enjoy this one. It took some time to finalize the recipe, but I’m really happy with the final result – bold, rich, a touch of sweetness, and bitter on the finish. Hope you all enjoy this one! Cheers!

History of the Tartan Cocktail

The history of the Tartan cocktail is not well documented. The drink is not mentioned in any pre-20th century cocktail books, and its origin is uncertain. Some say that it was created in the early 1900s by a bartender in New York City, while others claim that it was invented in Scotland. The most common recipe for the Tartan cocktail includes Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, and Drambuie, a Scottish liqueur made from scotch, honey, herbs, and spices. The drink is typically served in a cocktail glass and garnished with a lemon twist.
