Originally from East Asia, Yuzu combines the enchanting flavours of grapefruit, lemon and sour mandarin.
Widely spread in Korea and Japan, now embraced and championed by the leading chefs in occidental cuisine, Yuzu is the new premium citrus must-have on menus.
Tangy and tart with a sensual citrus fragrance, Le Fruit de MONIN Yuzu adds an unique and unforgettable flavour to refreshing cocktails or a soothing touch to a hot drink when under the weather!

Beverage Innovation Director's tips
This beautiful citrus flavour with subtle floral notes is a great replacement of lemon and lime. Not only does it add a perfect twist to any classic cocktail but is also amazing with soda applications, smoothies and sherbets. My personal favourite is to use Le Fruit de MONIN Yuzu in a classis Margarita, with its smooth, sweet and sour touch. Welcome to the new age of cocktails!
