The Quest for the Perfect Drambuie Cocktail Begins with 2012's Nail or Fail Showdown

Drambuie, the spicy Scottish liqueur that's been tickling tongues since 1745, is on the hunt for the bartender with the brains and the skills to work cocktail magic. What kind of cocktail magic, you ask? The kind that demands your expert judgment this March 19 and 20 during their Nail Or Fail Bartender Showdown.

Mixing Drambuie's signature blend of aged Scotch whisky, spices, heather honey and herbs into a toe-curling drink is not for the faint of heart. To nail it, Drambuie's bringing San Francisco's top mixologists together to battle it out by making their most unique, inventive cocktails using the liqueur for you fine folks to taste. Whether it's got a salted rim, an on-fire float, or flavor-infused ice cubes, you get to decide who's nailed it and who's failed and should get thrown to the lions.
