The Pegu Club Cocktail

A Pegu Cocktail

After Van Havig of Gigantic Brewing mentioned his love of Gin, we talked about some favorite preparations. You can hear him describe in Episode 29 the Pegu Club Cocktail - the house cocktail of the British gentlemen's club in Rangoon. It's super dangerous and really easy to drink

Here's what I've been making:

1.5 oz Gin

0.75 oz Cointreau/Tripel Sec/Orange Curacao

0.25 oz Lime Juice

1 dash Aromatic Bitters (e.g. Angostura Bitters - I use Scrappy's)

1 dash Orange Bitters (I use Regan's)

Shake with crushed ice for 15-30 seconds to make ice cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Some versions up the amount of gin to a full 2 oz and even increase the lime juice to a full 0.75 oz, but I think that's a bit too much lime.
