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?).

Usage

I say, that Mr. Dhunjibhoy can really knock back those Patiala pegs, yaar! I see him every day at the club and he basically goes through two-three of them in an hour! He's mad or what?

Definition

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.

Usage

Bearer: What will you have?
Quick Gun Murgan: Whiskey and Masala Dosa idiot!
Panju: 6 Patiala Pegs please. Black Label. Estrong please.
