The Rusty Nail is a Scottish drink blending Scotch and Drambuie. This is a perfect cocktail for fall / autumn drinking, with its golden brown color and hearty kick!

For those who are curious, Drambuie is a mixed liquor made in Scotland, and its name comes from the Gaelic phrase "the drink that satisfies". It is mostly Scotch whisky blends plus honey.

Drambuie has 9g of carbs, 0g fat and 439 calories per 30ml serving.

Really, Scotch Whisky (or Scotch for short) is just whisky made in Scotland. The flavor variation comes, as with wines and other handmade items, from the local ingredients used. In this case, it has to do with the Scotch waters, the peat used to cook the malt, and other similar idiosyncracies.

To make a Rusty Nail, fill an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes. Pour in 3/4oz Scotch. Gently add the 1/4oz Drambuie. Depending on your taste preferences, you can also go with 1 shot Scotch and 1 shot Drambuie. I suppose it depends if you have a really good Scotch that you want to appreciate, or if you want to drown out your mediocre Scotch with the honey in the Drambuie :)
