Umeshu Cooler cocktail with plum wine and lemon soda

Umeshu is a Japanese plum wine made with tart green ume plums. It’s tasty on its own, but it benefits from being paired with something that cuts through its syrupy-sweet viscosity.

Enter the Umeshu Cooler from travel site Savvy Tokyo. It literally could not be simpler: one part plum wine, two parts lemon soda, served on ice. You might want to play with that ratio a bit, depending on the sweetness of your plum wine and your soda.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build the drink in the order given in an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a twist or wheel of lemon. If your plum wine came with whole plums in the bottle, feel free to fish one out and drop it in the glass – it’s delicious!

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
