Pegus Around the Web

Here’s a pretty old school post for me: Let’s talk about Pegus being talked about around the Internet! After all, that was kind of my original intent for this blog, when I started it more than two years ago.
I got a Google Alert recently that a search engine/ask and answer site called Mahalo had just done an article on How to Make a Pegu Club Cocktail. Their recipe and procedure for making a Pegu is pretty solid, though I prefer Cointreau, and a little less of it. Also, I find this instruction in Mix the Drink fairly amusing:

Pour the gin, orange liqueur, lime juice, and bitters ingredients into a cocktail shaker (or a jar with a tight top) filled with ice cubes, not crushed ice.

Really? When was the last time someone made a drink so unusual and exotic as a Pegu in a mason jar? I mean, besides me when on vacation in a rented condo….
Also, the page includes a small version of this video from SavoryTV.com of Audrey Saunders of the Pegu Club in Manhattan. It’s a nice little video in which she discusses the story of the club and the cocktail, throws in a bit about Prohibition, and makes three drinks (including a Pegu) all in 99 seconds.
I embed the full sized video here. Enjoy.
