Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday**, the drink that snags the most 5-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series.
This week's winner is Frederic Yarm from Sommerville, Mass., and his creation, the Tanglin Club. And what is it a riff off of? The very famous Pegu Club. Says Yarm about the drink, it's "named after another prominent gentleman's social club started in the 19th century to serve the British — namely the Tanglin Club in Singapore."
Thanks to our bartender friends at ShakeStir for contributing, and stay tuned for more Hump Day Cocktails!
**We know it's a bit late, but we all could use a drink after the Wednesday holiday!
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
