WHY IS IT CALLED A ROB ROY?

The Rob Roy cocktail was named after an operetta that narrated the story of a great Scottish folk hero who supported the poor. The operetta debuted in New York City in the late 1800s, and a bartender at the nearby Waldorf Astoria Hotel created the cocktail for opening night and to publicise the play.
