As if there weren’t enough great summer drinks available already (I’m talking to you, Gin and Tonic), here comes the Pegu Club Cocktail. It seems fussy (two types of bitters??) but it’s really pretty forgiving. Don’t have any fancy orange curaçao? Triple sec will do the trick. And if you don’t have any bourgeois orange bitters just double up on the angostura (although, really, orange bitters are amazing).
The Pegu Club Cocktail
- 1 and a half ounces gin
- 1 ounce orange liquor (triple sec or orange curaçao will work)
- 3/4 ounces lime juice
- 2 dashes angostura bitters
- 2 dashes orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with a few ice cubes and shake for about 20-30 seconds. Strain into a fancy glass and drink somewhere relaxing, preferably outdoors. On a patio.
