Suffering Bastard - a slight variation

Drink Type: Cocktail


1 oz. Gin (more Gin drinks)
1 oz. Rum (more Rum drinks)
1 oz. Ginger Ale (more Ginger Ale drinks)
1/2 oz. Lime Juice (more Lime Juice drinks)
dash(es) Bitters (more Bitters drinks)


Pour all the ingredients with ice into a cocktail glass. This drink originated at the Shepherds Hotel in Cairo Egypt during the prolonged British visit there. The original name was "The long suffering bar steward." That is until the Americans got there and it was soon "bastardized" to Suffering Bastard. Variation (slight): add 2 or 3 slices of fresh cucumber cut the length of the cuke and serve it in the drink.
