Scotch Cocktail For Burns Night: The Rusty Nail

imageJanuary 25th is “Burns Night,” in which the birth of Scotland’s poet laureate Robert Burns is celebrated. The actual Burns Night celebration is quite formal, but if you just want to raise a glass to the bard …

Unadulterated glasses of Scotch are always best, but if you want a cocktail, try the classic Rusty Nail:

Rusty Nail Cocktail Recipe
2 Ounces of Scotch
1 Ounce of Drambuie
1 dash of bitters

You won’t want to mix your really expensive Scotch, though. For a Scotch that’s priced reasonably enough for mixing, try the Black Grouse.
