Yuri Kato

Japan's rich history of spirits is experiencing a renaissance as people the world over become increasingly infatuated with beverages made from sak, shochu, and Japanese whisky. In Japanese Cocktails, cocktail expert Yuri Kato collects more than 60 recipes for cocktail classics (such as the Hinomaru, the Yuzu Bath, and the Echo Julep) as well as original creations that infuse such non-Japanese spirits as vodka, rum, and tequila. Including the history of Japan's distinctive spirits, tips on finding key ingredients, and sidebars that cover topics ranging from cherry blossom season to Tokyo's fashion district, this handy guide offers readers a unique glimpse into contemporary Japanese culture, perfect for perusing while enjoying a delicious drink!

Yuri Kato is a beverage alcohol consultant, a publisher of Cocktail-Times.com, and a frequent judge at cocktail competitions around the world. Born in Japan, she lives in New York City and Denver.
