My twist on an Italian summer classic.

The Rob Roy is a blend of Scotch and vermouth sharpened by a dash of angostura bitters. Experts everywhere would agree that a martini is to a vodka martini as a Manhattan is to a Rob Roy. A Manhattan is a blend of rye or bourbon and sweet vermouth, and the Rob Roy is a mixture of Scotch and sweet vermouth; the difference is as sharp as that between a yam and a Yukon Gold. Anyone familiar with the 1995 film Rob Roy knows the source for the name of this cocktail—Robert MacGregor, the Scottish Robin Hood. Of course, unless you’re a Scottish history buff, if you heard someone order a Rob Roy before 1995 you may have been a bit puzzled. Although we do not know who christened the Rob Roy for that feisty Scottish hero, according to William Grimes in Straight Up or On the Rocks, the drink was named for a Broadway play based on Sir Walter Scott’s 1817 novel Rob Roy. Just as feisty, the Rob Roy gives you a wealth of enjoyment; the only thing it may rob you of is your memory after one too many. Follow your instincts on whether to stir or shake, but as with the Manhattan, a Rob Roy doesn’t lose much by not being served glacially cold. The classic Rob Roy is served with a maraschino cherry, but some shudder at this and substitute a twist of lemon peel.

The Aviation Cocktail is a gin-based cocktail whose special appeal comes from the addition of maraschino liqueur. Previously headed for the endangered species list, the Aviation Cocktail seems to be having a revival thanks to the Internet. The Aviation was once regarded as the prince of cocktails, but the scarcity of maraschino liqueur nearly sent the drink into tippler’s oblivion. The name of this feisty Depression-era cocktail is supposedly linked to air travel of the time—a risky venture not for the faint of heart. Only the most traditional or serious bars still make the Aviation. This is one drink that home-bartending aficionados are dabbling in. Shake the Aviation hard enough that tiny flecks of ice float in the drink as soon as it is poured. Stay clear of the gooey syrup in maraschino cherry jars. It’s no substitute for the liqueur. This recipe was featured as part of both our New Year’s Eve Speakeasy Party and our Best Picture Cocktails story.

There's no telling how old this recipe is -- it could conceivably date back to Imperial times, when the Roman Jewish community numbered about 50,000. In any case, carciofi alla giudia are a wonderful treat: they look like golden sunflowers and their leaves have a delicious nutty crunchiness.
