This sophisticated cocktail from Taiwan is a unique collection of flavours, that include cumquats, shiso leaves, ginger and pineapple textured over a solid mix of Midori and gin, yet remains light but retains enough body to accompany the red bean cakes.
If they are available, one can find another dimension to this lovely mix.
