The fragrant scent of coffee and barley stands out!

Snow Japan

【How to make】

(1) Mix shochu and carbonated water at a ratio of 1: 3 to the glass with ice

(2) topping the grated Japanese radish.

The amount is your choice, but the more you have it, the cleaner you drink!

A mellow shochu adds a refreshing flavor of grated Japanese radish.

Shochu turns into a shochu cocktail that fits Japanese cuisine.

To avoid defeating the impact of the grated Japanese radish, the base should choose rich taste.

Vibes Point

Sweet cocktails are easier to match.
It is more compatible with sweet-tasting cocktails than dry cocktails.

“Sweet potato shochu” sweetness is familiar well with sweet-mouth cocktails.

Compatibility with cocktails using spices is “bad”.
Cocktails with spices like Tabasco or Worcester sauce

The compatibility of “sweet potato shochu” is not very good. Be careful not to use.

Try by your taste! It is not cocktail but if you drink rich taste sweet potato shchu with hot water and Sprinkle black pepper in it, that is amazing taste my favorite!
