It was an auspicious night some time in the 1950s when Hollywood star Clark Gable strode into the bar at the legendary Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong and ordered a screwdriver. The bartender wanted to do something special for Gable so he put a little extra effort into it, hand-squeezing the OJ, using the premium-est of premium vodka, and carving out a baseball-sized ice cube. That drink, made pretty much the same way, is still on the menu at the moody, wood-paneled first-floor hotel bar.
