A new issue of DRiNK just came out. This issue looks at single malts, and so I wrote an article on the Rusty Nail. It’s an excellent drink for the northern winter so mix one up.
Much as I like peated whiskys, I think this drink works better with something lighter. Incidentally, if going that route, the recently released Drambuie 15 might be fun to experiment with. It is dryer than the regular Drambuie, and contains a higher ratio of single malt and older whiskys. I have not yet played with it, but am sure it would make a good Rusty Nail.
While writing this article I decided I rather liked Rusty Nails with a grapefruit twist instead of the standard lemon. A very simple way to take this cocktail in new directions.
No experiments for me right now though. I am headed to tropical Burma where I will no doubt imbibe a Pegu Club or two.
