Pegu Club Fitty-Fitty Martini

One of the most beloved riffs on the classic.

Audrey Sanders created one of the most famous iterations of the equal parts Martini at Pegu Club. Featured in his new book The Martini Cocktail, Robert Simonson explains, “for orange bitters, she used a house mix of Regan’s and Fee Brothers—the only orange bitters brands widely available. The combination became known as Feegan’s. Saunders is adamant that, since the drink is a mere three ounces in volume, only one dash of Feegan’s is needed.”


  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (Saunders uses Tanqueray)
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Saunders uses Noilly Prat)
  • 1 dash Feegan’s orange bitters (equal parts Fee Brother’s orange bitters and Regan’s orange bitters)
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:cocktail
  • Garnish:Lemon twist


Combine the liquid ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Express a lemon twist over the surface of the drink and drop it into the glass.
