The vast majority of Scotch lovers prefer this drink with a Blended Scotch, however, there is also a growing contingency that prefer their Rusty Nails with Single Malt Scotch. Whatever your preference, the Rusty Nail packs a lot of punch as Drambuie is a high proof liqueur (80 Proof). Add that to your favorite Scotch, and we suggest you place a sign on your forehead that states, “I am highly flammable.”

1.5 oz. Scotch

1 oz. Drambuie

Serve on the rocks and garnish with a lemon twist.
