Hump Day Cocktail from ShakeStir: The Tanglin Club
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!
