Seminal cocktail lounge Pegu Club just turned five, and to mark the occasion, owner Audrey Saunders has launched an “All-Star” menu running through September. The chronological compendium showcases original concoctions of past and present Pegu bar-men and -women, a trove of mixology talent that includes Fort Defiance’s St. John Frizell and PDT’s Jim Meehan. Pictured above: the Lil Jig from Phil (Death & Co.) Ward, who was there in the beginning, and two contributions from current Pegu Club cocktailians — Del Pedro’s Scotch-centric Highland Harvest (above) and Kenta Goto’s gin-based Cucumber-Apple Fizz. Check out the complete menu below.
