Well I consulted the bible on this one (Trader Vics Bartenders Guide)

Trader Vic claims to have invented this one too, but the drink is not listed in the old testament (1947 edition) so I consulted the new testament (1974 edition). FYI: at one point Trader Vic also had the US Patent on the design of the Suffering Bastard Mug.




unfortunately, while I had saved this image of the bastard patent, I can't find it on my hard drive and the one linked to above is now gone.

Did anyone save this that they could repost?

thanks!!

Here's a pic of the drawings for the Suffering Bastard Mug patent, displayed on the wall at Vic's in Dallas:


Also, here's the skull mug drawing:

From the LIFE archives:


"Allied servicemen relaxing at the American bar in Shepheard's Hotel while on leave. (hatless bartender is Joe Ellinsky Shallum, older man on bottom rt is American Merchant seaman Lou Harkness.)"

Gosh, Joe Shallum does sound a lot like Joe Scialom... could this guy be the Suffering Bastard's inventor?

I made a Suffering Bastard tonight that I think is much better than the recipe from the Grog Log. I've always thought that 1 oz of lime juice was overpowering. I have had a hard time finding a ginger beer that I like. I had some Stewart's ginger beer that I thought was pretty good, but I can never find it around here anymore. I use a little bit of muddled fresh ginger to make up for the deficits of my mundane ginger ale. I used usually use Maker's Mark bourbon, but tonight I used Bulleit because that's what I had. Bulleit has more rye and I think it gave it a snappier flavor, although I quite like the smoothness of Maker's and will probably go back to that when I buy my next bottle. I usually use Tanqueray, but tonight it was Aviation because that's what I had. The blood orange bitters, falernum and fresh ginger are what really brought this drink to life for me.

Muddle in tall glass:
small piece of fresh ginger (about the size of a sugar cube) with
juice of 1/2 lime (about 1/2 oz)

Fill the glass with ice cubes and add:
1/2 oz falernum
1 oz gin
1 oz bourbon
1 tsp Stirrings blood orange bitters
3 oz regular ginger ale

I don't usually garnish this drink, but I like to just toss in the spent lime half that I juiced. I wash the limes well before juicing to remove the wax.

I had missed this thread on the Suffering Bastard before. I was recently telling Bora Boris about the Suffering Bastard at Grand Star. Grand Star, located around the corner from Hop Louie in China Town, is a chinese restaurant/ bar, with live jazz karoake (at least it was the last time i went, which was probably a good 7 years ago), which goes back almost as far as Hop Louie. I used to go there to see the house singer do standards, and to try the various tropicals they had. At that time most of the cocktails were harsh at best, but i would love to get the Suffering Bastard there because it was served with a gherkin floating in the drink.

We tried this recipe for a suffering bastard, using vernor's ginger ale, and Videot's homemade falernum...ooooooh so good!
We changed the falernum recipe a bit..and used a lot less of it, because it's soostrong! anyone want the recipe?
Cheers!

To make things even more confusing Beachbum Berry's Remixed has a different version of the original SB. This new-old version calls for Rose's Lime Juice. There are also two additional recipes from Joe called the Dying Bastard and the Dead Bastard. These both have Gin, Brandy and Bourbon and were served as hangover cures. Oh my.

Drinking a Bastard at Vic's is good but it is really a different animal entirely from most of these recipes. Really that drink should be called a Suffering Vic.

I am pretty sure that at Forbidden Island you are getting the Grog Log recipe or something very near that. I know there is Gin in their version and also Jim Beam. Gin and Bourbon in a Tiki drink Makes this interesting and unexpected and definitively makes this one of my favorites.
