A fine scotch has always been a byword for opulence and sumptuous lifestyle. Scotch, albeit the fact that it is a hard drink to mix, preserves its signature smoky, bittersweet taste in the mix. Here are a few scotch cocktails that reminisce the original characteristic scotch flavours quite tastefully.

Rusty Nail Cocktail

Rusty Nail Scotch and Whisky Cocktail

Prep Time

Total Time

Rusty Nail is one of the most popular Scotch Cocktails of all time. This amazing drink is made by blending Scotch and Drambuie in an Old Fashioned Glass. Well-aged Scotch is used to make this sweet and smoky drink. The smoky flavour of Scotch is reduced by adding Drambuie to the mix. Drambuie makes the concoction slightly sweeter and adds herbal overtones to it.

Several variants of Rusty Nail are served at different bars and restaurants, around the world and various well-aged liqueurs are used as the base spirit. You are required to serve this mix with lots of ice. The shaken version of this cocktail is served in a Stemmed Glass or a Martini Glass.

Straight Up Nail is the neat version of this concoction served without ice and garnish.
