Happy Tiki Tuesday! This week for Tiki Tuesday we'll be making a Suffering Bastard. The Suffering Bastard was invented at the Shepard Hotel in Cairo, Egypt and is a classic Tiki cocktail.
To make a Suffering Bastard add some ice to your cocktail shaker then add:
- 1 oz Gin
- 1 oz Bourbon
- 1 oz Lime Juice
- 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.
The gin and bourbon really blend in nicely with the combination of the lime juice, ginger beer, and bitters. Even if you aren't a gin or bourbon fan give this one a try. It blends well and the ginger tastes great!
