Jamie’s Rusty Nail

Jamie’s Rusty Nail

A sudden roar from the roof above startled me out of my thoughts.

I walked out into the dooryard and looked up, shading my eyes against the morning sun.  Jamie was sitting astride the rooftree, rocking to and fro over one hand, which he held curled into his belly. 

“What’s going on up there?”  I called.

“I’ve got a splinter,” came the terse answer,obviously spoken through clenched teeth. 

I wanted to laugh, if only as small escape from tension, but didn’t.

“Well, come down, then.  I’ll pull it out.”

“I’m no finished!”

“I don’t care!” I said, suddenly impatient with him.  “Come down this minute.  I want to talk to you.”

A bag of nails hit the grass with a sudden clank, followed instantly by the hammer.

First things first, then.

Diana Gabaldon, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, Chapter 30 – The Captive

Technically, I supposed, it was a splinter.  It was a two-inch sliver of cedar wood, and he’d driven it completely under the nail of his middle finger, nearly to the first joint.

“Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ!”

“Aye,” he agreed, looking a little pale.  “Ye might say that.”

The protruding stub was too short to grip with my fingers.  I hauled him into the surgery and jerked the sliver out with forceps, before one could say Jack Robinson.  Jamie was saying a good deal more than Jack Robinson — mostly in French, which is an excellent language for swearing.

“You’re going to lose that nail,” I observed submerging the offended digit in a small bowl of alcohol and water.  Blood bloomed from it like ink from a squid.

“To hell wi’ the nail,” he said, gritting his teeth.  “Cut the whole bloody finger off and ha’ done with it!  Merde d’chevre!”

Jamie's Rusty Nail

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a sliver (nor Lionel Brown awaiting interrogation nearby), and I need a drink.

Rusty Nail, anyone?  I have no doubt wee James and his middle finger would be grateful for a dram…

Jamie’s Rusty Nail

Traditionally made with blended whisky, I used what we had on hand: The Dalmore 12 YO single malt.  The Drambuie adds a spiced sweetness that should flavour the whisky without overpowering it.

  • 1.5 oz Scotch Whisky
  • .5 oz Drambuie (or more to taste)
  • crushed ice

Pour the whisky and Drambuie into a glass filled with lots of ice.  Stir and serve with a twist of lemon, if desired.

Sláinte!

    Btw.. it’s reading her books that got me to try Scotch… and I can still remember that first sip of 10year old Ardbeg. It.was.Magical! I have to say that nothing beats a smoky, peaty Islay scotch while reading Outlander.

    I have just put a hold on the first book of the Outlander series at my local library, due to all the references that Tara has made in her recent posts! Can’t wait to read it! Love your blog, as well as On A Branch :)

    Yeah! I FINALLY was able to sign up for the RSS feed. It hasn’t been working for me for over a week. I love the idea of Outlander inspired soaps!

    The soap sounds lovely! If I don’t win, I’ll be more than happy to purchase some on my own. Jamie’s sounds especially wonderful!

    I love this blog! Me and my friend always text one another about what Jamie and Claire would do in this and that situation :) It would be lovely to surprise her with a soap!

    And now I have more reason to soak in a good hot tub at the end of a weary day. Good luck to me! If you win, I am glad for you. Diana, may she write well and write long!
