Rusty Nail

Difficulty Easy
Technique Stirred

Making its first appearance mid last century, the Rusty Nail is the very definition of a classic.  But classic or not, the proportions used of Scotch to Drambuie vary widely. We tend to prefer a 3:1 ratio but it really is just a matter of taste.


  • 2 oz. 60ml Scotch Whisky
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Drambuie
Display: oz. ml.




Stir ingredients with ice and strain into an ice filled rocks glass.


Lemon zest
