Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet. Think "Ivanhoe" and "Lady of the Lake."
He was a Scottish patriot through and through, so I'm not quite sure what this Rum and Brandy drink has to do with him. But it sure does sound good!
The drink is a bit of everything, just like its namesake. The real Sir Walter was a poet, an author, and a scholar. As for the drink, it’s sweet, sour, and it brings a lot of attitude to your taste buds.
Here's the recipe:
