Shishito Yuzu-ade Cocktail

Makes 1 drink

This inventive take on a Vodka Lemonade muddles shishito peppers and uses yuzu juice instead of lemonade. The resulting summery/spring cocktail is packed with shishitos’ citrusy-peppery aroma & flavor (without much heat) with yuzu’s complex floral-lemon-grapefruit notes on the finish.

Shishito Yuzu-ade Cocktail
  • 2 Shishito Peppers, destemmed & deseeded
  • 1oz Yuzu Juice
  • 2oz Vodka (we used Smirnoff)
  • 3/4oz Simple Syrup (How to Make Simple Syrup)
  • Splash of Club Soda



Put the peppers, simple syrup, and a few cubes of ice in a large glass. Muddle vigorously until the peppers are pulped and broken into pieces.


Combine the resulting mixture with yuzu juice & vodka in a shaker.


Add ice & shake to blend & chill.


Strain into a high ball glass over ice.


Add a few pieces of the shishito pepper from the strainer as a garnish. Top with the club soda & serve.
