A shochu, yuzu drink recipe (with nonalcoholic mocktail options) for renewal, inspiration, and awakening. See notes for substitution options.
Prep Time 7 minutes
Servings 1 person


Jasmine Green Tea Simple Syrup

Yuzu Shochu Cocktail

  • 2 slices cucumber
  • 1 sprig mint
  • 4 drops lavender bitters
  • 3/4 oz jasmine green simple
  • 1/2 oz 100% yuzu juice
  • 1/2 oz grapefruit juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 oz triple sec optional
  • 1.5 oz shochu
  • 1 oz soda water (double for mocktail if not using nonalcoholic substitutions)
  • cucumber & mint srig for garnish

Yuzu Mocktail-Specific Substitutions


Jasmine Green Tea Syrup

  • Steep jasmine green tea in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Stir in sugar until dissolved.

Drink Recipe

  • To a shaker, add cucumber, mint, bitters, and jasmine syrup. For cucumber and mint-forward flavors, muddle cucumber and mint.
  • Add in yuzu, grapefruit, shochu or seedlip, and triple sec or orange sec (optional). Add ice and shake firmly to express cucumber and mint.
  • Strain or dump into glass over ice and add soda water if going for spritzer. Alternatively, you can enjoy in a stemmed cocktail glass as a yuzu sour without the bubbles. Garnish with cucumber and mint, & enjoy!


Mocktail: For a nonalcohlic variation, I recommend Seedlip Garden 108 and Lyre’s Orange Sec (optional). If you don’t want to use nonalcoholic substitutes, you can simple make the recipe without alcohol and double the soda water
