Perfect Drink® recipe

Rusty Nail

A mixture of Scotch whisky and Drambuie. The bite of the Scotch is mellowed by the sweetness of the Drambuie, although some prefer to use less of the sweet liqueur for a drier version. While its exact origins are unknown, cocktails similar to the Rusty Nail have been around since the late 1930s.
