white cocktail with shiso leaf and lime wheel garnish

You can only imagine the unique flavor it provides the Yuzu Gimlet cocktail.

Yuzu is typically used in dishes such as ponzu sauce, marinades, and dressings, and it is also used as a flavoring for sakรฉ and other alcoholic beverages. In recent years, yuzu has gained popularity in Western cuisine, particularly in gourmet restaurants and bars, where it is used in cocktails and desserts.
