Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha combines two distinctly Japanese flavors to create this refreshing carbonated drink.
What you'll need to make a Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha
Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha is made from Hojicha Powder, yuzu marmalade, and carbonated water. Hojicha Powder is a Japanese roasted green tea that is finely ground into a powder, and is often available on menus alongside matcha. Since it is roasted, Hojicha Powder has a unique rich and chocolatey flavor that makes it the perfect alternative for coffee based recipes.
The Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha has a gentle sweetness from yuzu marmalade. Yuzu is an aromatic citrus fruit with a bright tartness. While the yuzu fruit isn't widely available outside of Japan, ready-made yuzu marmalade, jam, or syrup can be found in your local asian grocery store. Simply check the ingredients of citrus products for yuzu (ゆず or ユズ in Japanese) or yuja (유자 in Korean).
The final ingredient is carbonated water which brings the fizz to this drink. In this recipe, we recommend club soda or sparkling water (seltzer). Prepare the Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha with your favorite brand or make carbonated water at home to enjoy a delicious twist on your go-to fizzy water.
How to make a Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha?
Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha is prepared by mixing together carbonated water and yuzu marmable in a glass with ice. The carbonated water is also used to whisk the Hojicha Powder for more bubbles. Then the whisked hojicha is poured into the glass to create the light, sweet, and fragrant Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha.
