Suffering Bastard

It's a hangover cure, a gin drink, a brandy drink and a ginger beer cocktail. But we should note that Angostura bitters is the main ingredient when it comes to taste. A tablespoon of bitters has an outsize effect on a drink.

My new ginger beer is Cock and Bull, a funny label that indicates that this product is a Moscow Mule mixer. What about a Bastard mixer?
  • 2 oz. gin (Strange Monkey used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. brandy
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1 tbsp. Angostura bitters
  • ginger beer
  • cucumber slice
  • mint sprig
  • lime slice
Coat the inside of a Collins glass with Angostura bitters. Combine gin, brandy, lime juice and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into the highball glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with cucumber, mint and lime.
