Your challenge for 2024 is to create a cocktail for either Masataka or Rita using a Nikka whisky, gin or vodka of your choice. If Masataka and Rita visit your bar to celebrate Nikka’s 90th anniversary, what would you serve and why? Please create a 90th Anniversary cocktail that speaks to the duality of Nikka. Showcase your creativity and understanding of Nikka Whisky by pouring a story into a glass.
Happy 90th!
