Friday Night Cocktail

The Pegu Club Cocktail*


If I had to describe this cocktail in one word, it would be lovely. It’s refreshing and balanced. It’s grapefruity (one of those weird things as it has no grapefruit in it) and would be perfect for a hot, sunny day. Which makes sense as according to everything I can find, it was signature cocktail of the Pegu Club in what was Burma. It’s the magic base spirit, triple sec and juice combo I’ve banged on about before but not equal measures, lime instead of lemon and the addition of bitters.

*all of March’s Friday Night Cocktails come from The Cocktailian Chronicles by Gaz Regan, you should go and buy this book, it’s great.


2oz Gin

1oz Cointreau

0.5oz lime juice

2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 dash orange bitters


Shake over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
