For this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, we decided to go old school again and fill you in on a drink that dates back to the Roaring Twenties when the Prohibition was in full swing and speakeasies and bootleggers were rolling in cash – the Suburban. So basically, since the Suburban was invented and became popular during a time when alcohol was illegal, it was viewed as a very controversial drink – which is all the more reason to try it.
Described in three words, the Suburban is mature, robust, and satisfying. Sounds good, right? When sipping on this controversial and, frankly, pretty odd combination of rye whiskey, port, and rum, one feels like the well-to-do racehorse owners for which the drink was invented back in the 1920s.
Stay classy, Modern Pioneers.
1 ½ oz. Lost Republic Rye Whiskey
½ oz. rum
½ oz. port
1 dash orange bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Stir well with cracked ice and strain into a chilled tumbler. Cheers!
