Peach Pegu Club Cocktail

by kelly vass in


A summery twist on a classic cocktail. 

Are you familiar with the Pegu Club Cocktail? I wasn't until last week, when I was trying to find a springtime, gin-based cocktail for my podcast, Alphabet Soup. Each episode, Autumn and I have a segment called Cocktail Memoirs, where we tell stories (both good and bad) about life or our week through an interpretive cocktail.

For tomorrow's episode, we had a listener request that we make a cocktail perfect for spring and all the changes it brings. She also requested that it be ginspirational, meaning gin-based and delicious. 

The Pegu Club Cocktail fits that bill perfectly. It's a combination of gin, orange liquor (triple sec, cointreau), bitters and lime juice. It gets its origins in Burma's Pegu Club, a club outside of Rangoon. Though it's considered a hot-weather cocktail already, I was maybe a little anxious for warm weather and decided to add peach as a nod to summer.
