Honshu Punch

Honshu Punch sour highball with Japanese whisky, lemon juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup, aromatic bitters, and sparkling water

The Honshu Punch, from Thomas Waugh at Death & Co, is a study in balance and texture. The hint of smoke from the Japanese whiskey, the fluffy sweet pineapple, the tart lemon, and spicy bitters all work together to make something more delicious than the sum of its parts.

Waugh’s recipe calls for two dashes each of Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters and Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters. If you only have one variety of aromatic bitters, feel free to use it for all four dashes; we tried it as directed and frankly couldn’t taste much of a difference between the two.



Shake all ingredients (except the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass or brandy snifter, and top with the sparkling water.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
