Cocktail of the week by mixologist Andres Aleman

For our first cocktail featured in this blog I wanted to start with a  libation that is been around for quite some time. A time when Britain was an empire and among all the colonies they had Burma (Union of Mayanmar ) was one of them. One of the private clubs that the British colonial rulers and administrators favored was located in the city of Rangoon and it was called The Pegu Club and of course they had their signature cocktail that carried the same name of the Club:

“The Pegu Club Cocktail”

2 oz. Beefeater gin
¾ oz. Cointreau
¾ oz. Fresh pressed lime juice
1 dash of angostura bitters
1 dash of orange bitters

A delightful and refreshing combination of botanicals, citrus and sweetness.
