Happy Robert Burns Day! Today is the birthday of the Scottish poet who wrote “Auld Lang Syne” (among many other things), so why not celebrate with a scotch cocktail?
The Tippling Bros developed this cocktail for a Boozy Robert Burns Dinner this weekend in New York City, and along with the folks at Highland Park, were kind enough to share it. Read some Robert Burns poems, mix this concoction and celebrate Scotland’s national poet and spirit. Courtesy of Tippling Bros and Highland Park Scotch. Photo by Christina DiLaura.
