Suburban

Suburban cocktail with rye whiskey, aged rum, port, aromatic bitters and orange bitters

The Suburban, named for the nineteenth-century Suburban Handicap horse race series, is a classic cocktail with ingredients and proportions that wouldn’t be out of place in today’s hippest speakeasies.

The original recipe in the Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book called for rye whiskey and Jamaican rum. We actually prefer it with bourbon, but it’s great both ways. We haven’t met an aged rum we haven’t liked in it it, and it’s pretty stellar with dark rum as well.
