Cocktails don’t come much easier than this one, which has been around since the late 1930s. A lot of recipes suggest equal parts, but you’re better off starting with two ounces of scotch and a half ounce of Drambuie, tinkering until you find your personal ratio. No matter how you drink it, you’ll be channeling the Rat Pack in no time.



  1. Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass, add 1 large ice cube, and stir.

  2. Garnish with a lemon twist.
