To make a rusty nail cocktail, combine 2 ounces of Scotch whiskey and half an ounce of Drambuie. Pour both of these ingredients into an Old-Fashioned glass with plenty of ice in it, and then stir before serving. Garnish the drink with half a twist of lemon peel.
For a sweeter version of the drink, combine equal amounts of Scotch and Drambuie. Some of the best types of liquors to use in the drink are blended Scotches, including Johnny Walker Black and Dewar's 12.
During the course of its history this cocktail has gone by several different names, including Little Club No. 1, D & S, Mig-21 and Knucklehead.
