How to make:

STIR ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass.


Lemon zest twist


The liqueur smooths and wonderfully combines with Scotch whisky. The proportions of Scotch to Drambuie vary wildly and are a matter of taste. However, somewhere around 3:1 appears to be preferred by most.


Created in 1942 at a Hawaiian bar for the artist Theodore Anderson but popularized in the 1950's at Club 21 in New York City.
