Mr. Robert Roy
5 shots out of 5
I got inspired by my "adult version" of the Shirley Temple I made the other day, Surely Not Temple. I decided to kick up the other childhood favorite, a Rob Roy, by adding some alcohol to it. I did and named it Mr. Robert Roy (notice his "grown-up" name). If I haven't already told you that we have figured out the cause of these fevers that last for-ever this is why........3 ear infections between 2 kids. These poor kids........and they never told me that their ears hurt......ever! I'm glad I took them to the doctors last week and figured it out.
I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5. WOW, this is a good one! It's funny how you can change up a classic non-alcoholic cocktail just a little and it becomes an amazing adult cocktail! This cocktail sort of tastes like cherry coke but with a delicious vanilla kick. I will definitely be finishing this one......right now. If you are more of a coke and not diet coke person, you can absolutely substitute it in either way would be delicious!
Here is my recipe for a Mr. Robert Roy:
- 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
- 3 oz diet coke
- 1/4 oz grenadine
In a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, pour in all of your ingredients. Stir and enjoy!!
