Suffering Bastard Cocktail

The original name for this drink was apparently the Suffering Bar Steward, but as one might expect in a noisy bar after a few drinks, the name gets a little mangled. There are several recipes for this floating about. For mine I turned to one of my favorite sources, Beachbum Berrry's Grog Log, by Jeff Berry.


Fresh lime juice 1 Ounce
Bourbon 1 Ounce
Gin 1 Ounce
Ginger ale 4 Ounce
Angostura bitters 1 Dash
Ice cube 1 Cup (16 tbs)
For garnishing:
Cherry 1
Orange wedge 1
Mint sprig 1



Fill glass with lime juice, bourbon, gin, ginger ale, angostura bitters and ice.

Stir well.

Garnish with cherry, orange and mint sprig.


Serve and enjoy!
