Adapted from a recipe by Audrey Saunders, co-owner of Pegu Club in New York City. As a Christmas gift, my cousin enrolled us in a two day Mixology class where we learned about the basics of mixing a great cocktail and some recipes for a few unusual drinks. Not being a fan of gin, I didn't think I was going to like this drink... but oh my! I love it! And everyone I have made if for loves it too! You must try!
