Suburban

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
