This martini was created for…. you guessed it….Bob. He’s Bob Sawyer, one of the guys at and is largely responsible for creating this great website of ours. Bob enjoys scotch as well as sweet cocktails with a citrus note. I also happen to know he and wife, Holly, have a little herb garden, so came up with this scotch whiskey libation that includes rosemary and some slightly sharp overtones of redcurrant jelly.

Heeeere’s Bob!



  • 2 oz scotch whisky
  • 1 tsp redcurrant jelly
  • 3/4 oz ruby port
  • 1/2 oz sambuca
  • 2 small sprigs rosemary
  • Extra rosemary for garnish


  1. Add port, sambuca and redcurrant jelly to a shaker or mixing glass
  2. Use a spoon or shake to blend in the jelly before adding ice
  3. Half fill the shaker with ice
  4. Add all other ingredients, including the 2 rosemary sprigs
  5. Shake vigorously to break down the jelly and release oils from the rosemary
  6. Double strain into a cocktail glass
  7. Garnish with the rosemary
