A classic from the Pegu Club in Burma during the height of the British Empire.
Post a comment about this drink:
My second favourite gin cocktail (after the Negroni).
The good thing about it is, that it is prone to some level of experimentation. I tried it with my home-made orange liqueurs, and it was still awesome.

No I meant Cointreau
Yes the cheap stuff can
ruin it but Grand Marnier
and the others listed just don't
fit the bill

I used Bittermen's Burlesque Bitters and 03 Premium Orange Liqueur (from DeKuyper) it was absolutely amazing!
As for the tip to use Cointreau, I believe they mean to use a GOOD Triple Sec and not just the generic artificial crap, so Grand Marnier, Marie Brizard, Patron Citronge and all those should work just fine. The cheap stuff can really ruin it...ruin everything, for what it's worth...

Very Refreshing... I put 2 drops of Angostura Bitters in... not sure if a dash=1 drop but that seemed to taste good :)
