(recipe, Jacob Grier)

The Pegu Club is a great summer gin cocktail, first described in the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book as “the favourite cocktail of the Pegu Club, Burma, and one that has traveled, and is asked for, round the world.” The original Pegu Club is no longer open for business, but an excellent cocktail bar by that name has opened in New York City. You can order one there or make this contemporary adaptation of the drink at home.


  1. 1¾ oz. gin
  2. ¾ oz. Cointreau
  3. ½ oz. lime juice
  4. 1 dash Angostura bitters
  5. 1 dash orange bitters


  1. Put all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.
