Since opening earlier this year, Bar Peached in Austin, Texas has been serving up Asian-Southern cuisine to the Clarksville neighborhood. From the same team behind the popular Peached Tortilla, Bar Peached is known for it’s Tex-Mex cuisine and creative concocted cocktails, including the Kyoto Kiss.
Made with a mix of gin, homemade raspberry shishito syrup, egg white and yuzu juice, the Kyoto Kiss is a nod to the Japanese city.
“The cocktail was inspired by the historic district of Kyoto in Japan,” explains Bar Peached’s beverage Director Kevin Kok. “Doing a drink with raspberry and shishito peppers backfired on me a bit as my dry cleaning bills for work shirts are ridiculous but it’s worth it.”
