This cocktail is a seasonal twist on one of our perennial favorites, and a classic dry cocktail. This drink originated in the 1920’s at the Pegu Club in British colonial Burma, as a fresh, balanced cocktail, and has experienced a resurgence in popularity these past few years. In this twist, we’re adding notes of classic chai spices to add a warm depth to the bright, fresh notes of orange, lime & juniper.
