Experimenting with some spirits on this cold, rainy night in Tokushima.
While few people think of Japan when they hear the word "gin," I've found quite a few of these botanically-laden beverages bearing a Japanese birthright.
Hiroshima-based spirits specialist, @sakuraodistillery is one of these brands. Apparently, this original blend comes loaded with botanicals like yuzu fruit, bitter orange, green lemon, cypress bark, green tea, ginger, and red shiso leaves, just to name a few. Hell, they've even got a sakura blossom limited edition. 🌸
Being that I have a surplus of locally grown lemons right now, it only made sense that a fresh-squeezed lemon sour would be this evening's experimental libation. Tart, herbal, and packed with citrus, this dry gin cup of deliciousness is sure to become a favorite at our BBQ parties this spring. .
