Vodka-sudachi cocktail

I am now, as I write this, sipping a cocktail made of vodka, club soda and sudachi juice.

The sudachi, a bittersweet citrus variety which is virtually unknown outside of Japan, tastes quite a bit like concentrated lime and mandarin orange; they're frequently about four or five centimeters in diameter. You don't peel them; you're supposed to pop them into your mouth and chew them, including the rind and seeds.

Last Saturday, Mari and I went on a little day trip over to Tokushima on the island of Shikoku, which is famous for sudachi. I'm a little ashamed to say it, but I've been in Kobe for almost 2 1/2 years now but I've never gone to Shikoku until last week.

Sometime in the next few days, I am planning an update to recount the stuff I've done over the last few months. Honest.

    I've been thinking I should try more cocktails. Sudachi remind me of Meyer Lemons, which we just tried recently are were very happy with.
