Kofuna – Japanese take on an Old Fashioned using rice



Did you know that cocktail culture has thrived around the world in the last century, unlike in America? Japan has revered bartenders, who have evolved their bartools over the decades since Prohibition killed cocktail culture here. I’m celebrating with a Japanese take on an old fashioned. Happy Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month!
