This Burns Night, Drambuie tempts discerning drinkers to celebrate Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns, with more than just a wee dram, but with some fantastic Burns night cocktails specially crafted for the occasion.

On Saturday 25th January, try one of these specially created Drambuie cocktails to bring an unexpected spice and sweetening flavour to this most Scottish of occasions.


Rusty Bobby Burns

This cocktail is inspired by The Bobby Burns from J.R. Sheridan’s cocktail bible, How to Mix Fancy Drinks, which was first published in 1901. A dash of Drambuie will bring a new depth of flavour and intrigue to this timeless recipe.

15ml Drambuie

30ml Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky

15ml Sweet Vermouth

2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Method: Stir well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass 



Rusty Robert Burns

This cocktail brings something even more special to Sheridan’s original recipe by using Drambuie 15 – a connoisseur’s expression of Drambuie that balances the secret Drambuie elixir with the finest 15 Year Old Speyside malts. In the Rusty Robert Burns, Absinthe and Maraschino marry perfectly with the soft Speyside malt character of Drambuie 15 to create an extraordinarily experimental cocktail in honour of Scotland’s favourite bard.

50ml Drambuie 15 Year Old

20ml Sweet Vermouth

5ml Absinthe

5ml Maraschino

2 Dashes Orange Bitters

Method: Stir well with ice and strain into a cocktail glass


The MacKinnon Punch

A deliciously refined drink with all the hallmarks of a classic Drambuie cocktail with an added fizz.

35ml Drambuie

Top Soda

2 Dash Angostura Bitters

Method: Fill a highball glass with ice and pour in the Drambuie. Top with soda water and add the Bitters. Gently stir. Squeeze in the lemon wedge and place in drink as your garnish.
