Recipe: Pegu Club's Gin-Gin Mule Cocktail

Pegu Club's Audrey Saunders and her Gin-Gin Mule cocktail

 

This fresh and vibrant cocktail is one of Pegu Club’s signature drinks. “The trick is the homemade ginger beer, which is non-negotiable," says Audrey Saunders, who opened the bar in 2005. “Commercially produced ginger beer is laden with sugar, which suppresses the bright, bold flavor profile of this drink.” Thankfully, the accompanying ginger beer recipe yields a whole gallon, so your Gin-Gin Mules will only be a few shakes away for weeks to come.

Recipe: The Violet Hour's Hush and Wonder Cocktail

The Hush and Wonder cocktail from the Violet Hour in Chicago

 

This riff on the classic daiquiri from the Violet Hour, one of the nominated bars for our new Outstanding Bar Program award, uses a rinse, a trick for imparting a drink with just a hint of a particular ingredient. A small amount of Crème de Violette is swirled in the glass to coat its inner surface, enlivening the cocktail with a fresh and floral character. Get the recipe here.
