What was the inspiration behind your Fizzy Pegu Club Cocktail?
“I got inspiration from the Pegu Club’s origins which date back to the early 20th Century in Myanmar (Burma), and to the club of the same name located just outside of Rangoon my hometown in what is now called (Yangon). I did a twist on the old classic Pegu Club cocktail to create another style, the Fizzy Pegu Club cocktail. Cheers!” – Kaung Zaw
