This is a fizzy, refreshing cocktail that packs a spicy punch. Don't be put off by how it sounds, give it a try and you'll definitely love it.
I wanted to come up with an unsweetened refreshing cocktail. Green Japanese pepper (ao sansho) is currently a huge trend in Europe. NHK picked this up in one of their programmes and ever since then it's been getting a lot of attention!Since then I've also been going a bit crazy with sprinklng lots of different things into my drinks.
Feel free to change the proportion of wine to carbonated water. You might think that I'm crazy by putting Japanese pepper in a cocktail but try it for yourself. It's just so fizzy and refreshing.This spice is different to the brown pepper often used in Chinese cooking so please be careful.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
