The only existing drink I can recall that includes Drambuie is a Rusty Nail, which is scotch on the rocks with a splash of Drambuie.
So lets make up some!
1. You could make a tasty creamy drink with the 1/4 bottle of amarula (about 2 oz. per drink because it's pretty low proof right?), a bit of Drambuie (say 1/2 oz. per drink), and some light rum (1.5 oz. per drink). Blend with ice with that slushy machine. Pour into chilled wine glass or tiki mug. Serve with straw. Mmmmmmmmm. I'll call it an African Goddess.
2. How about 1.5 oz. rum (gold or light), 1/2 oz. Drambuie, and 1/2 oz. lemon juice. Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass and float lemon twist. Let's call it a Honeycomber (Drambuie has honey in it).
3. 1/2 oz. limoncello, 2 oz. orange juice, 2 oz rum, a teaspoon vermouth, a teaspoon drambuie - everything but the amarula. Shake with ice and strain into short tiki mug with crushed ice. Garnish with orange slice and cherry (and pineapple slice if you wish). Add paper umbrella. The Witch Doctor.
4. 2 oz. rum, 1/2 oz. limoncello, 1/2 oz. lime juice. Dip edge of chilled cocktail glass in limoncello, shake off excess, and dip in superfine sugar. Shake drink with cracked ice and strain into cocktail glass. Add lemon slice garnish. The Hockey Puck (I couldn't think of anything else and it's popular in Canada).
