Yuzu Margarita  

Serves 2 

60ml Shochu of your choice (ideally barley, rice)  

60ml Aotan no Yuzushu

30ml cointreau bitter 

15ml Lime juice 

A pinch of salt (rather than put around a glass) 

200g ice cubes 

10 ml Campari

Put all of the ingredients except the campari in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into the margarita glasses. Drop ½ tsp of campari to each glass so it sinks to the bottom of the drink.
