Walking In Memphis is inspired by one of my all time favourite songs and the approach I take to cocktails in my venue; Memphis Slim's House of Blues.
Starting a shift with a coffee has been a staple of mine for the decade or so I've been in the industry and I don't plan on stopping now. Seppeltsfield is an amazing producer here in SA and I've always loved creating cocktails with all their flavour forward products.

Juice Yuzu flesh and store in sealed container in fridge until ready to combine with peels & sugar
After 24 hours pour Shochu over peels & sugar and pop aside to sit for a week
Combine Juice with Shochu mix then fine strain into a bottle & Enjoy!

Oil filter and allow to cool then bottle
