The Rhum Club is PDT owner and mixology legend Jim Meehan’s tribute to the classic Pegu Club cocktail, with rum and orange shrubb taking the place of gin and orange curaçao.
Meehan’s recipe calls for Banks 5 Island Rum, a white rum made from 21 different types of rum from five Caribbean islands. That’s a hard bottle to substitute, but we can confirm that this drink is tasty with everything from rhum agricole to a standard-issue Cuban light rum.
- 2 parts Unaged rhum agricole or Light rum
- ½ part Shrubb
- ¾ part Lime juice
- ¼ part Simple syrup
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters
- 1 dash Orange bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with an orange wedge.
