The legendary Pegu Club in Burma, in which Montgomery Collins – the forefather of Monkey 47 – undoubtedly spent many an enjoyable hour, is shrouded in numerous myths and tales. This was a traditional gentlemen’s club with cast-iron rules: Only high-ranking British military officers and successful businessmen were allowed to enter. The locals, on the other hand, did not stand a chance. (Although, if the legend is true, Monty once managed to smuggle the colonial beauty Esmiralda inside). And in true British style, the house cocktail was based on, you’ve guessed it, gin: the Pegu Club. According to Harry McElhone, add 4 cl Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, 1 cl Orange Curacao, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 dash of Angostura bitters and a dash of orange bitters to a shaker with ice cubes, shake vigorously for half a minute and pour into a chilled coupette. An outstanding aperitif that lends a charmingly bitter flavour to our monkey. Cheers!

The difference between a Tom Collins and a Gin Fizz can be summed up using the following simple rule: one is stirred, while the other is shaken. To put it even more simply: The Gin Fizz is a sour topped up with just a splash of soda water, while a lot more soda water is added to the Tom Collins to create a longer drink. And for that special twist, ...

It was around 1888 when New Orleans bartender Henry C. Ramos developed his special gin fizz (the Ramos) and made his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon, the toast of the town. The attention was not just due to the cocktail’s unusual combination of ingredients. According to legend, each bartender needed an assistant, whose only job was to vigorously shake the drink – incidentally, one of the most important factors in the cock...
