How do you drink Yuzushu at home? A question we often get asked by our customers.
YUZU & JASMINE SPRITZ
A delicate, low-alcohol spritz that marries sherbetty yuzu fruit with fragrant jasmine tea. I use Saicho Sparkling Jasmine Tea, which is lightly sweetened with grape juice. If you have a sparkling tea that's unsweetened – or a very tart yuzushu – you may want to add a dash of sugar syrup. A recipe that also works brilliantly with sparkling wine in place of jasmine tea.
GARNISH: cucumber and/or edible flower
METHOD: build over ice
75ml yuzushu - try different variations from the Umeshuya collection!
50ml sparkling jasmine tea
5–10ml sugar syrup (optional)
