TwoForTheBar_ScoutMagazine_GrapesAndSoda_Cocktail_2017_1-(1)

Leave it to Grapes & Soda barman Satoshi Yonemori to make his own kombucha, throw it in a cocktail and create something delightful! Served over an ice cube made of butterfly pea flower, the “Ri-Kyu” is a perfectly refreshing springtime sipper that takes on a purplish hue as the ice melts. Flavours of gin combined with caraway, grapefruit juice, white vermouth, Cocchi Americano, result in a light yet complex cocktail with a touch of effervescence from the kombucha. Also, you can’t beat the adorable little bottle that it’s served in! Yonemori updates the cocktail menu regularly so head on over soon if you want to give it a try for yourself!
