According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the Rusty Nail made its first appearance in 1937—and it wasn’t long before it became a classic. Don’t worry; there’s no need for a tetanus shot after drinking one of these.

I use 2oz scotch to 0.5oz Drambuie. I love the flavor the Drambuie adds, it's just too sweet on a 1:1 ratio
Most recipes I have seen and used for the Rusty Nail are .5 oz Drambuie to 1.5 oz Scotch. I find a full 1 to 1 a bit too sweet for my taste.
