Review:

Citrusy and refreshing with the gin base providing backbone. Rich zesty orange curaçao is accentuated by tart lime.

History:

Created in the 1920s at the Pegu Club, an ex-pat gentlemen's club in British colonial Rangoon, Burma.

The Pegu Club first appears in the 1923 "Harry" of Ciro's ABC of Mixing Cocktails and also, notably, in Harry Craddock's seminal 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book where he notes, "The favourite cocktail at the Pegu Club, Burma, and one that has travelled, and is asked for, round the world."

197. Pegu Club Cocktail.
