The Rusty Nail cocktail is a classic mix of Drambuie and Scotch whisky, commonly served “on the rocks” in an Old Fashioned glass. Due to just being two spirits, the Rusty Nail is very strong and isn’t to everyone’s taste. This cocktail is the drink of choice for fictional character Saul Goodman, known from the popular TV series Breaking Bad and Netflix original Better Call Saul.
