And let me tell you, I've had a hard day. Oh, after a hard day's work, there is nothing more rewarding than drinking alone in your own apartment. Luckily, living in Japan drinking has never been easier. Unlike other countries, where you are expected to go to a liquor store and produced two pieces of I D. Japanese alcohol can be purchased in convenience stores and in supermarkets, sometimes right next to the frozen goods. Not only that, but the prices are insanely reasonable. But what makes to pan unique, especially in comparison to my own country, Canada is the vast array of cocktails and chu Hi, So you might be thinking once a too high. Chu Hai is an abbreviated form of chilled you high boat, which is obviously Chau Chiu highball. So it's Japanese liquor mixed with carbonated water or carbonated beverages and then flavored so it isn't unusual to see to heist coming flavors such as you may or lime lemon orange grapefruit. Compared to cocktails, they're quite sour, but they are pretty strong and It's very common to find Shuhei in Japanese is a chaos and bars, and then we have the cocktails. Asahi makes a brand called cocktail partner, and it comes in two can designs. I'm not sure what the difference is. We've got melon and vanilla. You take the popular Japanese melon soda and make it alcoholic. There is nothing more delicious than this, I swear to God. This is also a very popular cocktail that you'll find in Japan. It is called Cassis orange, and Cassis is kind of like a black current BlackBerry. I don't know. We don't have castles in Canada, so I don't really know how to explain it. But this is really good, especially if you can get it like noncarbonated like when you're at a bar. If you ask for cash, he sold N G. Chances are they have it. Try it. It's amazing. This is violet fizz, which is lemon and violet liqueur. Assad. He sells a wide variety of cocktails at a very decent price. But Son, 20 is not to be outdone. We have Daichi and away. This one's actually really good. I love it because it's so Asian was raised thinking away was something you put on your skin when you have a bad sunburn. But in Japan, you drink it grand. No passion fruits. So, like passion fruit garden sounds really summer full and summer full isn't even a word. This one's actually quite low. It's only 3% alcohol with 77 calories, so you can drink and not get drunk and not get fat. But son Tony isn't the only company to have low calorie cocktails. Assad. He jumps in that market with very line of cocktails, aptly named slut. Now I'm sure I know what you're thinking, and actually, I've made a video about it already. It's not uncommon to seek help us flavored cocktails as well. If there is a Chinatown near you, chances are you've tried Help us before. It's kind of like a milky beverage, So this one's like a milky kelp. It's flavored. Um, what? Lemon lemon drink. You know, that's all the alcohol I have for tonight. As for me tonight, I think I'm gonna drink the melon one because I do what I want. And you're not the boss of me. This is huge. What have I done? The drinks that are usually sold 10 to change based on the season. But if you have a favorite cocktail or one that you have tried that I didn't introduce in the video, please let me know in the comments so that my magic and channel also I started a second channel. And you don't have to subscribe if you don't want to. But I'm gonna post a bunch of random stuff on there, like just stuff that isn't like quality that I still want to share. If you're interested, you can check out my second channel and subscribe there. And that's it. I'm gonna make another video in a week. It s so loud, I'm competing with the motorcycles. This is my life. Says what I have to deal with all the time. All the motorcycles making noises by my house. It's not uncommon to see I should have finished talking before I started drinking.
