From the bartender’s corner – Akori Pegu Club
Pegu Club derives its name from the Pegu river in Burma. This goes back about a hundred years back. Burma was a big hub of activity for the British. In Rangoon (the capital has been renamed to modern day Yangon), one of the most exclusive clubs was called Pegu Club where the rich and the aristocrats hob nobbed. This gin based drink was the cocktail de jure there…
This has gin (I used Akori), Orange Curacao, lime juice, Angostura bitters and some orange bitters.
