Japanophile

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

“It’s no secret that I’m a Japanophile,” says John deBary. He has studied the language since middle school and briefly lived in Kyoto. Many of the main ingredients in this drink come from East Asia: sake, shochu (a clear distilled spirit) and a little sour yuzu juice, from the Japanese citrus fruit.

  1. Ice
  2. 3/4 ounce aquavit
  3. 3/4 ounce barley shochu
  4. 3/4 ounce daiginjo or ginjo sake
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh orange juice
  6. 1/2 ounce yuzu juice
  7. 1/2 teaspoon cane syrup (see Note) or Simple Syrup
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe.
Notes Sweet, thick cane syrup is available at Whole Foods and cocktailkingdom.com.
