Pegu Club Cocktail

From my friend, Patti

4 oz. fresh lime juice
4 oz. Orange Curacao
6 oz. Gin
1 TBS orange bitters
About 12 oz. of Tonic

Makes a pitcher and it is divine.

This is where it started.

Cliff Goodman’s Irish Coffee

Use a slice of orange to rim the cup with white sugar.  Put a little Irish whiskey in the cup. Tip and spin the cup so that you can light it and it will make a hard candy rim.

Use a teaspoon of brown sugar, shot of Irish whiskey, shot of Kahlua, top with coffee, give it a stir, whipped cream on top.


I finally figured it out. 

One lime makes 2. 

Cut it into 1/16s. Put half in an iced tea glass. 

Fill the glass with fresh mint leaves. (Ours is Sweet mint.) Mash it all up with a pestle. Mash it a LOT because the oils in the lime skin are important. This will squash down to fill a quarter of the glass. 

Fill the glass with crushed ice. 

Add equal parts rum, 1:1 sugar syrup and tonic water. 

Give it a stir and enjoy the evening.
