The Nankai Mangrove: Shochu and Tonic
Created by beloved Japanese bartender Masaya Yagishita as a shochu riff on the classic gin and tonic. An excellent cocktail for summer and dinner. This shochu cocktail is perfectly balanced with lime, spearmint and the tropical aromas of black sugar.

- ½ Lime
- 6-10 Spearmint Leaves Include pepperment stems and leaves if available.

Muddle to release oils and juice.

Garnish with mint and lime slice and serve.
