Lately I’ve been using and tasting a lot of Japanese spirits.

This cocktail is inspired by simple and pure Japanese culture mixed with bitter and complex style of Western world.

The beauty of this drink is in the simplicity and purity of the look and preparation. Yet it is still complex and deep in flavour giving us that velvety smooth mouth feel delivering on all fronts, which lingers on your taste buds.

Showcasing pure Haku vodka made out of rice, with its softness it goes extremely well with the pure cold brew coffee taste of Mr Black.

Adding in Italian Bitter for complexity and then Vanilla syrup to tie it all together with some sweetness. Oils from orange add freshness and helps to integrate Campari to boost this sensation in your mouth.

Name Orange kohi is inspired from Japanese language since ‘kohi’ means ‘coffee’ and orange is a play on the name ‘Haku’ which is ‘white’.



 40 ml Vodka(Haku)
 20 ml Mr Black Coffee Liquor
 15 ml Campari
 15 ml Vanilla syrup



Into a mixing glass add Haku vodka, Mr Black Coffee Liquor, Campari and Vanilla syrup


Fill the mixing glass with ice and give it a stir for around 30 sec, looking to dilute the drink, making flavours more mellow.


Into a rocks glass add One large ice cube.


Strain the liquid from mixing glass into a rocks glass; pouring low and slow


Cut a generous orange peel and express good quantity of oils over the drink.


Rub the peel on the rim of the glass for extra flavor then drop the peel into the glass as a garnish

    This sounds simple yet somehow just right! I love Haku vodka myself.
