Pegu Club

Doug at the Pegu Blog called up the embassy of the Republic of Myanmar to ask how to pronouce this drink, which was named after a famous gentleman’s club that now lays abandoned in Rangoon. The verdict? It’s “Puh-GOO,” although nobody will fault you for saying “PEG-oo,” since that’s how it was pronounced at the now-closed Manhattan institution of the same name.

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
