A "B and B" is made from equal parts of cognac (brandy) and Bénédictine. It is typically served on the rocks, but may also be served straight. The producers of Bénédictine market this cocktail ready-mixed under the label "B & B."
First fill a 16 oz glass with crushed ice until it is overflowing. Pour in 5 parts drambuie and 9 parts scotch. Stir gently, as to not bruise the ice. Keep stirring until a thick frost develops on the side of the glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. Serve.
A Rusty Nail is made by mixing Drambuie and Scotch. Many prefer less Drambuie to decrease the sweetness of the drink. Scotch has a fairly biting and hot taste that is counterbalanced by the honeyed, herbal overtones of the Drambuie. A Rusty Nail can be served in an old-fashioned glass on the rocks, neat, or "up" in a stemmed glass. It is most commonly served over ice. A Rusty Nail served without ice is sometimes called a Straight Up Nail. The Canadian version of this drink is called a "Donald Sutherland" and substitutes rye whiskey for Scotch.
Cognac, white crème de cacao, and cream; garnish with nutmeg if desired. The drink was popular during the early 20th century. It is sometimes confused with the Brandy Alexander, which is made with dark instead of white crème de cacao.
