No garnish at home? No problem, do a Suburban!

A note on mixology by Esquire.com:

The Suburban, which dates from the rococo age of American drinking (roughly, from 1875 to 1920), is a most atypical concoction. Scanning through the professional literature of the day — works such as the 1891 Fancy Drinks and Popular Beverages, by “The Only William,” or Paul E. Lowe’s Drinks: How to Mix and Serve from 1909 — one comes across many a drink combining brandy and rum, and not a few with rum and port. There are even a couple with whiskey and rum. But whiskey and port? That’s weird, and all three together? Just plain freakish. But then again, maybe they knew what they were up to: To quote one of our regular correspondents, fresh from experimenting with this dark deceiver, “That thing is a sledgehammer.”

Ingredients

1 and 1/2 oz. Rye Whisky, 1/2 oz. Dark Rum, 1/2 oz. Port, 1 dash Orange Bitters, 1 dash Aromatic Bitters

Preparation

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
