Pretty much self explanatory.
2 oz. Umai! Shochu in an ice tea glass,
fill with green tea.
If desired, add a little sweetener to taste.
Or use your favorite presweetened green tea!
This works really well!
Fill an old fashioned glass with ice,
add 2 fl. oz. Umai! Shochu, fill with tonic.
Bitters are a natural in this; Lavender is great!
Chuhai (“chew-high”; a shochu-highball) is
the most common way shochu is served in Japan.
In a highball glass full of ice
add 2 fl. oz. of Umai! Shochu
and 6 fl oz. plain or club soda.
Squeeze two or three lemon wedges on top.
Lemon-lime soda also works as an alternative,
as do other flavors like grapefruit, peach, pomegranate…
