I felt like I might need a drink with an extra kick—a secret super power, if you will. The Rusty Nail seems to fit the bill. It's a fairly straightforward yet strong cocktail: a combination of Drambuie (the most distinguished of Scotch-based liqueurs) and the whisky it's made from. There's something swanky about this cocktail and there's a honey sweetness from the Drambuie elixir that softens the bite of the whisky. Old school recipes call for a 50/50 mix but this modern version from Liquor.com is far drier, suggesting four parts whisky to one part liqueur.
