My Score


The Robert Burns (or Bobby/Bobbie Burns) is one of those classic cocktails from the golden age of adult beverages. Most people would associate the drink with Robert Burns, the famed Scottish poet of the 1700's, but according to Crockett in The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book it may have been named after a cigar salesman who was a regular at the bar.
