This recipe came about as I was sampling an aged rum for a review and I began to wonder what it would taste like mixed with Drambuie similar to a “Rusty Nail” which is a Scotch whisky cocktail. I did a little experimenting and came up with a recipe that is similar to the “Deansgate Cocktail“. (A Deansgate is made with Rum, Drambuie, and Roses Lime Juice.) My recipe is made with Aged Dark Rum, Drambuie and a lime garnish. I call it The Drumbeat.

The Drumbeat

1 1/2 oz Aged Dark Rum (I suggest Dictador Rum)
1/2 oz Drambuie
Crushed Ice
Lime slice quartered

Fill a bar-glass half full of crushed ice
Add a quartered Lime Slice
Add the Dictador Rum and Drambuie
Stir and Enjoy!

Please Remember to enjoy your libations in a responsible manner!

    Hi Chip,

    Love your blog and agree with many of your critiques. I wanted to share a variation on this I have really been enjoying.

    2 oz dark rum (been really enjoying the Appleton 12 year like this)
    1/4 oz Drambuie
    few dashes Peychaud’s bitters

    Shake vigorously with ice, strain and serve straight up with a twist of lemon peel zested over the top. Enjoy!
