With World Cocktail Day on May 13th and World Whisky Day on May 18th, brown spirits are booming.

Taste your way through both of these great days with a classic cocktail like The Rusty Nail. The Rusty Nail is an easy drink to create and offers many ways to change it up based on your whisky, scotch or bourbon preferences. Give it a mix.

The Rusty Nail


  • 1 part DRAMBUIE
  • 2 parts Monkey Shoulder (Triple Malt Scotch whisky)

Preparation: Stir gently and garnish with a lemon twist. If you wish to try different variations, we recommend trying Glenfiddich 12 (single malt), Hudson Baby Bourbon (for bourbon lovers) or Tullamore D.E.W (for an Irish Twist) in place of the Monkey Shoulder.
