Various Flavors of Shochu Cocktail Recipe


  • The Educated Barfly’s Special Video
    Today we’re talking about one of Japan’s most iconic and popular spirits Shochu. It’s kind of amazing that Shochu isn’t much more well known in the western world as it’s one of the world’s most versatile and interesting spirits. Could 2023 be the year of Shochu? We certainly think so and our friends at Death & Co seem to agree!
