Cocktail: The Stork Club

I assume that this cocktail, like its cousin who we reviewed earlier this week, The Pegu Club, was named after the club it was created in: The Stork Club. This cocktail is almost identical to The Pegu, except this one has some orange juice in it, the gin and cointreau are scaled back a bit and it is garnished with an orange twist instead of lime. I give you the Stork Club courtesy of Robert Hess:

The Stork Club

1 1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 oz Orange Juice
1/4 Lime Juice
1 Dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange peel.

Very refreshing like The Pegu Club.
