Sakura Old Fashioned

Yuzu's unique fragrance and flavor adds depth of flavor in a new take on the classic Old Fashioned

Yuzu is considered culinary gold in both the kitchen and bar. Although, it isn’t directly eaten, it’s juice and zest contribute sour, tart and very fragrant aromas to dishes and cocktails alike. It’s a great complement to New York’s KOA’s take on the classic Old Fashioned. Shaken with bourbon, cherry blossom bitters and bitters, the sipper is the answer to your end-of the-day relaxation.

Old Fashioned Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Old Fashioned Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
