3 Years in Japan

How to celebrate 3 years living in Japan...

A bit of the old bubbly is certainly the way to go.

The 2007 vintage was a disappointment...



The 2008 remained unsampled...



The 2009...

Actually it's not that bad.

Mix it with some Tantakatan (shouchu made from shiso and available anyplace that anything alcoholic is sold) for the new summer drink.

Nice, good to hear from you after 3 months...

How is it? Any chance you could send me either of the 2008 or new 2009 Shiso flavored beverages? =) The cucumber one came through great last time.

Ill keep an eye out for the Shiso one. I think I saw some on clearance the other day.
