The Jasmine Cocktail is a sour, bittersweet variation of the classic Pegu. When made properly it takes like freshly squeezed grapefruit!
It was created by Paul Harrington in the late ’90s when a college friend, Matt asked him to make up a cocktail for him. Harrington named it the Jasmine after Matt’s last name (It was only later he discovered it was spelt Jasmin).
