Suffering Bastard

Suffering Bastard


The Suffering Bastard is that the name for two different mixed drinks, one being more of a typical cocktail related to World War II, and the other being more of an exotic drink related to Tiki bars. As is that the case with many cocktails, there are multiple recipe variations and historical origins. Two of the earliest recipe versions have very different ingredients. One from bartender Joe Scialom, involves brandy and gin, while another from Victor Bergeron primarily uses rum along side “secret ingredients” and is understood for being garnished with a cucumber.
