The Jasmine Cocktail

The Jasmine gin cocktail is a nice way to ease into the bitter tastes of Campari. Imagine a scale ranging from No Campari to The Negroni level of bitter. This pink gin drink is “just the right amount”.

It’s also a fairly potent cocktail, with a tiny bit of juice and the rest is alcohol. So pace yourself!

What the heck is Campari and why is it so bitter?

Campari is an Italian liqueur, made from spirits and herbs and a smidge of fruit. It’s red, potent, and super bitter. It’s technically an apéritif, which is a common style of cocktail used to stimulate the appetite before a big meal.

Did I mention it’s bitter? If you want full and bold Campari flavors, try the traditional Negroni. You may also want to try Crodino, the Italian version of a non-alcoholic Campari.

Some thoughts on the Jasmine cocktail.

It’s smooth. A great introduction to Campari without going overboard, which also give the Jasmine a lovely pink color.

If you don’t know that this drink has lemon, you might think it’s grapefruit due to the mild tartness. But it’s lemon. And it’s great!
