Anecdote Cocktail with Julien Escot: #3 Tokyo Society

We continue with our new Cocktail Anecdote section, with Julien Escot (Aperture Montpellier). This edition we discover the Tokyo Society.


Inspiration Cocktail

Escot is inspired by the Japanese community that frequent cocktail bars and hotels in Tokyo City to name this vodka-based cocktail. A cocktail that is both sagacious and subtle, reminiscent of the Asian country and with more exotic flavours. Partly thanks to yuzu and partly thanks to vanilla.

The Tokyo Society, an anecdote by Julien Escot

“This cocktail is part of a trilogy I created on the theme of Asia. I didn’t push the Japanese side to the limit, I worked more around the Yuzu-Vanille association, which works really well. The name evokes the idea of an urban community of people who frequent hotel and cocktail bars in the city of Tokyo.”
