Each month, Coco and Bar Moga showcase a new Japanese spirit (whisky, shochu, gin, etc.). In June, the bar is featuring two well-loved shochus – Iichiko Silhouette and Iichiko Black. On Wednesday evenings throughout the month, a glass of the Iichiko Silhouette and Iichiko Black shochus (neat, on the rocks or in highball form) are $6 and $8, respectively. Guests can also opt for an Iichiko shochu flight (served neat) for $7.
The “Coco’s Spirit” series is led by Kayoko “Coco” Seo, a trained jazz musician and Japanese beverage expert who refined her knowledge of Japanese spirits under the tutelage of the prolific Shingo Gokan of Angel’s Share. The epitome of a true moga, or “modern woman,” Coco is a certified shochu advisor and respected industry expert. She is thrilled to share her extensive spirits knowledge and tasting + pairing tips with guests in a casual, interactive setting.
Both drinks will be served with complimentary vegetable chips (lotus root, purple yam, potato, truffle salt), with the option to add a yellowtail carpaccio small plate for $9.
