“Pegu Club Cocktail”
The Pegu Club Cocktail is a gin based cocktail that was the signature drink of Burma’s Pegu Club. The recipe appears in the Savoy cocktail book of 1930 by Harry Craddock as “Pegu Club Cocktail”. Incorporating refreshing lime juice and orange curacao, the drink is slightly tart and citrusy. Served in a chilled cocktail glass, it’s a hugely refreshing cocktail for a warm country like Myanmar.
