Welcome once again to the Oriental Market blog. With this heat it is important to hydrate, for this reason we bring you a cool cocktail to make it in your summer nights. Umeshu is a traditional Japanese type of liqueur made from plums with sugar and alcohol. It was brought to Japan from China over 1000 years ago, and has long been loved during the late winter and early spring months for its beautiful pink flowers.
- 80ml umeshu
- 35ml lemon juice
- 15ml sugar syrup (50% water: 50% sugar)
- 15ml egg white
- 1 slice of lemon and 1 cherry, for garnish.
Place everything except the garnish in a cocktail shaker, add ice cubes and shake for about 10 seconds. Strain into a glass over ice cubes, garnish and drink.
