Suburban

Main Spirit Rum, Aged

The only cocktail that we know to combine Whiskey, Port & Rum, the Suburban is a bit of an unusual Classic Cocktail. Originating in the 1930s, the combination of Bourbon, Tawny Port, Aged Rum, Orange Bitters and Angostura Bitters is definitely a riff on a Manhattan.
