During the 1970s, the Rusty Nail cocktail was one of the hottest, but after a good run, its simple combination of scotch and Drambuie has fallen off most bar menus. Originally published in the 1967 edition of "Old Mister Boston Official Bartender's Guide", it blends smoky scotch with sweet Drambuie for an easy-going flavor.

Don't forget to see what other drinks you can make with the ingredients you already have in your bar.
