A slightly sour bittersweet riff on the Pegu Club. The original is just on the tart side of balanced without our addition of the optional spoon of sugar syrup.
Created in the mid-1990s by Paul Harrington at Townhouse bar, Emeryville, California and named after his college friend, Matt Jasmin, who challenged Paul to "Make me something you've never made before." Inspired by the classic Pegu Club, this cocktail is the result of that challenge. The Jasmine was promoted by its inclusion in his 1998 book Cocktail: The Drinks Bible for the 21st Century.
