RECIPE: Yuzu Martini

If you didn’t have a chance to celebrate National Martini Day yesterday, make a splash this weekend with a Yuzu Daiquiri. Whozu, you say? If you haven’t yet discovered the joys of the Asian citrus yuzu, it may well become a favorite in sauces, beverages, desserts and more.

Yuzu is believed to be a hybrid of the sour mandarin orange and Ichang papeda citrus, related to the kaffir lime. The fruit looks somewhat like a tiny grapefruit, and tastes like a relative, with a lot more sparkle (think grapefruit mixed with exotic citrus).

Buy yuzu juice at your specialty food store, Asian market or online; and try this recipe, courtesy of Riingo restaurant in New York City.



  • 4 sprigs of mint
  • 4 raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Dash of simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce yuzu juice
  • 2.5 ounces of light rum (such as Bacardi)
  • Ice and cocktail shaker

    1. In a mixing glass, muddle the mint, raspberries, sugar, simple syrup and yuzu juice.
    2. Add ice and rum and shake vigorously. Strain and serve up in a martini glass.
    3. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.
