1 1⁄2 oz Drambuie
3⁄4 oz Scotch
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice

Shake, strain.


The original was an exercise in simplicity, a sour made simply of Drambuie and lemon, with optional bitters and orange flower water. The new version is a Rusty Nail Sour with flowery bells and orange whistles.

Ha! I watched this exact episode just last night!... No Drambuie though, I'm gonna have to try the Cynar version.

"And I suppose that makes it better?"

Okay so, due to a dwindling Cynar supply, I went a different (if obvious) route and subbed Barenjager for the Drambuie. Good, but maybe a bit sweet this way. The OFW worked with the honey flavors very nicely, though. I may try adding a drop or 2 to my next Bee's Knees or Metamorphosis!

"It's a bad picture, Pam."

OFW + honey is a thing of beauty. I adjusted the ratios here somewhat after making another and also finding it too sweet.

Archer quote, wait, I... I had something for this.
