Rusty Nail Recipe

The Rusty Nail cocktail is a basic one consisting of Scotch and Drambuie. Most recipes call for a 2 to 1 ratio of Scotch to Drambuie, however, some might this ratio to be too sweet. Therefore, when making a Rusty Nail and find it too sweet using the 2 to 1 ratio, scale back on the Drambuie to fit your needs.


2 oz. Scotch

1 oz. Drambuie

Lemon twist for garnish


Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add ingredients and briefly stir. Garnish with lemon twist.
