The Peggy Cocktail is a classic and refreshing drink that dates back to the 1940s. It is the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness, making it a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts.
To make a Peggy Cocktail, start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of gin and 1 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Then, add 1/2 ounce of simple syrup and a dash of orange bitters.
Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15 seconds to combine all the ingredients and chill the drink. Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass of your choice, such as a coupe or a martini glass.
Garnish the Peggy Cocktail with a lemon twist or a maraschino cherry, if desired. Sip and enjoy!
