Asian pear cocktail

  • 2 Asian pears peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
  • 250ml shochu or sake
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Large ice cubes
  • 4 green shiso (perilla) leaves
1) Put the pear, shochu and lemon juice in a blender and puree until smooth.

2) Pass the pear puree through a very fine mesh sieve (or a regular sieve lined with cheesecloth). Press on the solids to get as much juice out as possible.

3) Fill 4 glasses with large ice cubes and put a shiso leaf in each glass. Use a blunt object to pound the ice and shiso to release its flavors. Divide the pear mixture between the 4 glasses and serve.
