and now for the cocktail culmination of my trip to new york: a seating at the pegu club and another check off of the good ol’ gq list.  the pegu club’s orginal namesake was a 19th century gentleman’s club in burma serving officers and foreign dignitaries for nearly a century with its signature drink – a refreshing contrast to the sultry surroundings, featuring gin and citrus accents.  now reincarnated in the heart of soho, pegu club maintains the sense of an imperialistic hideaway amidst the bustling new york streets below.  while sipping my excellently crafted gentleman’s agreement with scotch and blackberries, i felt transported to a time when the irrawaddy still ruled the rivers and britain owned the world.
