WHAT IS BURN'S NIGHT?
Burn's Night, or Robert Burns Day, Robbie (Rabbie) Burns Day or Burn's Nicht, is an annual celebration in Scotland of their most famous poet and bard, Robert Burns who was born January 25, 1759. Burns, who wrote Auld Lang Syne, is the national poet of Scotland and every year they celebrate by having a Burns Supper, serving traditional Scots food and, of course, drinking Scotch.
I replaced the orange bitters with Peychaud's and added an orange twist instead of lemon.
2 Oz. Scotch Whiskey
1 Oz. Drambuie
3/4 Oz. Sweet Vermouth
1 Dash of Peychaud's Bitters
GARNISH: Orange Twist
GLASS: Cocktail (Martini)
TOOLS: Mixing Glass
Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice until chilled, strain into the cocktail glass, garnish and serve.
Pair up with a few Scots shortbread biscuits (cookies) and you have the perfect Burn's Night treat.
