History

Recently, I had a guest at work who wanted a Rusty Nail, and I began thinking about Drambuie. I then recalled the delightful Brambuie-Fernet combination in the Bittered Old Coot and Bonita Applebum, and I took things in a Cognac and pineapple rum direction later that evening. For a name, the song "Big Spender" by Peggy Lee was on the sound system, and I went with it.
