Rusty Nail

Posted by Reese on 2010-01-31 @ 11:08pm

This week I’m going to be mixing up a drink I’ve had on my mental list for a long time, the Rusty Nail.  I’m a huge fan of scotch.  Well, more correctly whiskey in general.  Drambuie on the other hand, I have no idea what to expect.  I’ve never tried it and actually haven’t even looked it up to see what the flavor is.  Should be a great experience!  For this recipe, Regan recommends experimenting with the choice of scotch to change the flavor profile of the cocktail.  Since I’ve got a reasonable selection of scotch this will be a very fun week.
