Found at The DrinkBoyChannel. He describes it thusly:

Originally the specialty cocktail of the Pegu Club in Burma during the early 1900’s

This drink has unfortunately fallen on tough times, and it is difficult, if not impossible, to find a bartender who knows how to make one, much less has heard of it. It is however a wonderful drink, and well worth re-discovery. When properly made, it should have a bit of a citrus backbone, around which the Angostura and orange bitters are providing some interesting spice. The gin itself is just barely noticeable, making it a great drink for somebody who may not normally tend towards gin based libations. Its overall profile is one of complex but approachable flavors.

Give one a try, and you’ll see why this is on my shortlist of favorite cocktails.

I haven’t tried this, yet but am putting it here as a reminder to do so.

Luis Buñuel’s martini recipe:

“For those who are still with me, let me give you my personal recipe, the fruit of long experimentation and guaranteed to produce perfect results. The day before your guests arrive, put all the ingredients – glasses, gin, and shaker – in the refrigerator. Use a thermometer to make sure the ice is about twenty degrees below zero (centigrade). Don’t take anything out until your friends arrive; then pour a few drops of Noilly Prat and half a demitasse spoon of Angostura bitters over the ice. Shake it, then pour it out, leaving only the ice, which retains a faint taste of both. Then pour straight gin over the ice, shake it again, and serve.”
