Things to know about Rusty Nail Recipe

The Rusty Nail cocktail is the ultimate Scottish drink. Made up of Scotch Whisky and Drambuie, this whisky cocktail is super simple to make yet incredibly boozy. If you enjoy whisky drinking then this is for you. Made with a good quality Scotch Whisky and Drambuie which is a golden Scotch whisky liqueur infused with herbs and honey and spices. The Rusty Nail is traditionally served on the rocks with a twist however serious whisky fans skip the frills and drink it neat. The foolproof concoction is generally made of 3-parts Whisky and 1-part liqueur, however, for those who prefer a sweeter flavor, increase the Drambuie.
