Let me start by saying I am not a cocktail drinker, but reading the spirits board here inspired me to forego my usual pint of Bass or Harpoon and order a mixed drink at Eastern Standard.
Not really knowing anything about drinks, I just sort of perused the cocktail list and picked one that sounded good...a Pegu Club.
Oh my!!! it was terrific! Not sweet at all, with a little pungent smack. I think he made it with Bombay Sapphire but I'm not sure. The bartender was really nice and gave me a short history lesson on the cocktail (something about a British Officer's club in Burma).
Anyway, I'm hardly an expert but the mixology at Eastern Standard won me over.
