Restorative Required As Prescribed

Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother enjoyed a modest restorative occasionally. We have that in common. Queen Elizabeth's daughter, Her Majesty The Queen, has acquired similar tastes with regard to liquor: a concoction of gin and dubonnet.

I prefer to take a hip-flask with me occasionally; the preferred mixture of Scotch and Drambuie contained therein. It is known as a rusty nail.

Lord Belmont - another great post as usual. What are the proportions for a rusty nail - I'd like to try one!

By the way, if you don't mind me asking, what's going on with your posting name: Timothy F****S?? Doesn't seem to fit with the respectable tone of your blog!

I mix roughly 75% whisky with 25% Drambuie to taste. The quantity of liquor depends on how sweet you like it.

I decided to use my real name for posting, with the asterisks for anonymity.

BTW, the Onoto pen is still away being repaired. I'll post a blog about it when it returns. I recall your comment about the Mont Blanc!
