This syrup's base flavors are red shiso and ume plum. Ume plum flavor is tangy, assertive, and punchy, and has a hint of apricot.
The red color comes from red shiso leaves--the red version of the more common green shiso leaves which you often see on sushi. Red Shiso has its own unique aroma--somewhat reminiscent of dark red cherry.
The beautiful red color turns vibrant pink when you add bubbly or plain water. Add the syrup to plain or bubbly water, ratio 1:4, for a virgin drink.
Try a quick and easy Red Shiso Margarita (1:3 Red Shiso Syrup and Tequila Blanco, plus a squeeze of lemon juice). Serve with salt on the rim of the glass.
