Neojaponisme Oh! Sake!: Fake Cocktails in a Can

Néojaponisme now has so many videocasts that we decided to rename our programming about alcoholic beverages in Japan — both with alcohol and without — to “Néojaponisme Oh! Sake!” Watch the latest in HD!

In this third episode, Marxy and writer/translator Matt Alt do a taste test of three Japanese “mocktails in a can” from Asahi under the brand name W Zero Cocktail — non-alcoholic, non-sugar recreations of classic cocktails Gin & Tonic, Cassis Orange, and Chardonnay Sparkling. (Spoiler question: Why do these even exist?)

Also watch Videocast #1 on Japanese third-category beer and Videocast #2 on whiskey highballs in a can. More episodes coming soon. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to get the latest updates.
