If you enjoy drinking Scotch, then you’re going to love us as we bring to your attention 5 Scotch cocktails that should be on your to-drink list!

A Scotch isn’t a ‘party hard’ type of a drink and Scotch drinkers don’t generally ‘drink to forget’. If you like Scotch, you’re about the fine things in life and you’d like to keep it that way. But with cocktails, Scotch isn’t the commonest of spirits, which is what makes it absolutely unique. If carefully prepared, the taste of Scotch perfectly blends with certain ingredients and creates some of the coolest cocktails ever invented by mankind. So shift your focus from the regular choice of drinks and try these 5 easy Scotch cocktails that you can prepare even if you’re not a pro bartender.

Take a look and try not to drool:

1. Rob Roy
A Scotch-y twist to the traditional Manhattan cocktail. A Rob Roy uses simple ingredients and is relatively easy to prepare.

Ingredients 
– Scotch
– 3/4 oz sweet Vermouth
– Bitters

Directions 
– Mix the ingredients together and garnish it with bitters or lime wedges.
