Classic Suffering Bastard

LetsTiki's picture
The Suffering Bastard is a classic tiki drink. That was invented in a hotel in Cairo, Egypt. The Suffering Bastard is made with Gin, Bourbon, Lime Juice, Bitters, and Ginger Beer (or Ginger Ale)
  Gin 1 Fluid Ounce
  Bourbon 1 Fluid Ounce
  Lime juice 1 Fluid Ounce
  Bitters 1 Dash
  Ginger beer 4 Ounce

Add some ice to your cocktail shaker then add the Gin, Bourbon, Lime Juice and Dash of Bitters. Shake well. I always like to shake my drinks until the shaker gets really cold and sometimes even frosty. Then, pour the drink into a highball glass, or whatever you have. The drink tastes the same in any glass. Top it off with 4 oz of ginger beer or ginger ale. Stir to mix in the ginger beer. You can garnish it wish an orange slice.
