The Pegu Club was a gentelman’s club for British officers in Burma, which was set up in the late 1800′s. The signature drink of the club is the now classic Pegu Club Cocktail, which for one reason or another I had never made. But with the weather heating up, it seemed like a good time to give it a go. If you’re a gin fan, I’d suggest you try it as well.
Pegu Club Cocktail
2 oz London Dry Gin
3/4 oz Orange Curaçao
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1 dash Angostura
1 dash orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lime twist.
