    How to Make a Rusty Nail

    How to Make a Rusty Nail

    People, you're all making your Rusty Nails wrong.

    First, use Lochan Ora instead of Drambuie. Lochan Ora has a wonderful heathery, honey quality without the medicinal aftertaste of Drambuie. Also for goodness sake use a decent scotch. Finally, don't put a slice of lemon in it or anywhere near it.

    One more thing, pictured above is an 8.5 ounce Bodum Pavina Double-Wall Thermo Glass, you caaan use them for coffee, but you'll find that when used for your Rusty Nails the ice will melt at a far slower rate, there won't be any condensation on the outside of the glass and you'll look super-cool.

    Nespresso Pixie - Electric Titan

    Nespresso Pixie - Electric Titan

    An Electric Titan Pixie sounds like some sort of cartoon network super-hero, but it's actually a coffee maker that helps you make a great cup without taking a barista course. We've tried various Nespresso models, but found this one to be just the right balance of small benchtop footprint with sufficient water volume. Keep an eye on the the spent capsule bin though as it isn't particularly large, and it is a bit fragile.

    Nespresso have taken on the same model as printer manufacturers like Hewlett Packard: sell a quality machine for a reasonable price but setup an exclusive market for the consumables which locks the consumer in for life, Nespresso's system has a further advantage in that it dispenses a measured shot of a legal drug. This is definitely the easiest way to make consistently great coffee at home.
