Spotlight on Yuzu
Let's highlight yuzu, our cocktail's star ingredient. This unique citrus fruit originates from East Asia and is celebrated for its distinctive flavour and aroma, which is a fascinating blend of grapefruit, mandarin, and lime.
In our Yuzu Bliss cocktail, we specifically use Kochi Yuzu from Japan's Kochi Prefecture, a region renowned for its high-quality yuzu. The Kochi Yuzu's bright, refreshing citrus note complements the fruity flavours of the sake and the peach liqueur, and adds an extra layer of complexity and uniqueness to the cocktail.
So, when you sip your Yuzu Bliss, savour the tradition, culture, and artistry that the unique yuzu brings to your drink. It's an experience that goes beyond taste, touching on the essence of culinary craftsmanship.
- Start by gathering your ingredients and your cocktail shaker.
- Pour the sake, peach liquor, grapefruit juice, and kochi yuzu into the shaker.
- Crack the egg, being careful to only get the egg white into the shaker. The egg white will give your cocktail a lovely frothy texture.
- Now it's time to shake it up. Add some ice into the shaker and give it a vigorous shake for about 20 seconds. This is not only going to chill your cocktail but also perfectly blend your ingredients together.
- Take your Toyo Sasaki Takasegawa handmade amber sake glass and add a teaspoon of passion fruit pulp at the bottom. This will provide a delightful surprise as you drink your cocktail.
- Strain your shaken cocktail into your sake glass, making sure to capture the frothy top.
- Finish off by garnishing with a slice of passion fruit for that extra tropical touch.
- And voilà, your Yuzu Bliss is ready to be savoured. Enjoy this symphony of flavours in every sip.
Remember, always enjoy your cocktails responsibly. Cheers, or as they say in Japan, Kanpai!
