This drink dates way back to 1920 and hails from a private British officers club of that name that was located in city of Rangoon (now Yangon) in Burma (now Myanmar). The club was for men only and about 40 years after its erection (budumcha!) introduced the Pegu Cocktail named after the Pegu River. If I am wrong on that info I would hope the esteemed Pegu Club in New York would correct me...also go see those guys if you are in NYC. They have a fantastic program that has churned out some amazing bartenders.
