Rusty Nail

  • Base Spirit Scotch
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Boozy
  • Served On the Rocks

Synonymous with 1960s American cocktail culture thanks to the adoration of the drink by the Rat Pack, the Rusty Nail is one of those recipes whose origins extend back into the 1930’s. It’s gone through many iterations over many generations. By far the most famous cocktail to make use of Drambuie (scotch whisky liqueur), its popularity has waned in contemporary cocktail culture, but a drink with a pedigree like this merely waiting for its star to rise again.

The mixed drink is also impossible to mess up; just mix the two ingredients and stir.
