Whoah. So that's what it was. It just tasted very Whiskey'ish, but with some very intriguing, undefinable twist. It was actually my introduction to whiskeys... the name sounded so ridiculous to the young buck I was back then, that I ordered it almost as a joke. And just like that, I realized whiskeys may be my thing. Rusty Nail – highly recommended.kiwi Bruce wrote:The Rusty Nail,

1 slice lemon
Drambuie...(thanks to Dnderhead from way back when)
750 ml of your best Scotch whisky or some good corn or UJSSM * well aged on oak.
1 1/2 cups mild honey
2 teaspoons chopped dried angelica root
1/4 teaspoon fennel seed
1 slice lemon, zest of, 4 inches
Combine all ingredients in a tightly covered container.
Shake several times for the first 24 hours.
After 24 hours, remove lemon zest.
Let stand for 2 weeks in the fridge, shaking gently every other day.
Strain through a sieve to remove the angelica and fennel seeds.
Keep in the fridge for as long as you can (but you can start driving nails now!)...the longer you can keep it the better it will be, up to 6 months
Pour clear liquid into carafe for drinking enjoyment.
Cloudy dregs may be saved for cooking.
What do you drink, and how do you drink it?
