Drink of the week: Jasmine 26's Dirt and Stormy


Dirt and Stormy
$8/$6 at happy hour

Jasmine 26
8 E 26th St., Mpls.

As a variation of the rum and ginger ale sensation the Dark and Stormy, Jasmine 26 gives us their take, dirty-style.

The Dirt and Stormy is everything a well-crafted cocktail should be: complicated and harmonious. Made with Bermuda black rum, homemade ginger ale, and the "dirt" of Sapporo beer, the mixologists at Jasmine 26 have perfected the proportions of spicy ginger to molasses-scented rum, while the Sapporo brings earthiness to the spicy/sweet blend. This drink is a swell compliment to a fiery hot meal.

The Dirt and Stormy is one of many cool creations on Jasmine 26's drink menu (which earned the distinction of Best Bubble Tea (alcoholic) 2009 by City Pages), sealing the deal that Jasmine 26 is a super-sweet cocktail destination.
