Of course this is a Punjabi invention. A Patalia Peg refers to a quantity that is usually twice the amount of alcohol in a single peg. All stories about the origin of this phrase come from the hedonistic lifestyle of one Raja of Patiala who was a big boozard and who apparently tricked the Irish into drinking twice as much before a game of tent pegging
Yup Panjus can even drink the Irish under the table!
However one does not need to hark back to the past....just watch any Panjabi glug his liquor and you will understand the true meaning of the Patiala Peg.

Patiala is a place in Punjab where the pegs of whisky are evidently quite generous (or else why would it have contributed its name to this term?).
