Scotch, Drambuie, Lemon Twist
Rusty Nail
The Rusty Nail is a simple, classic scotch cocktail that's been around in one form or another since at least 1937. It's made with scotch whisky and Drambuie, the renowned scotch-based honey liqueur. Humphrey Bogart and the Rat Pack made it hugely popular in the 1960s, and it's stuck around as a mainstay that you can get just about anywhere, from high-end cocktail join to dive bar.
