Adapted from a recipe by Zachary Nelson , The Continental Room, Fullerton, CA
“Part Rusty Nail and part Blood and Sand. I was making a Rusty Nail for a customer and as I was pouring the Drambuie, I looked up at the Cherry Heering and thought I’d give it a shot,” Zachary Nelson.
2 oz Dewar’s White Label scotch
.5 oz Drambuie
(Just less than) .5 oz Cherry Heering
2 dashes Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6
1 flamed orange peel, as garnish
Stir over ice and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Another of those simple drinks that works so damned well, this Bloody Nail will have bartenders all over the world slapping their foreheads saying, “Why didn’t I think of that.”
