East by North East is a clever twist on the Mint Julep. A notable warmth comes from the mead, while the Yuzu sake liqueur balances the whole drink with the addition of a rounded sweetness that ties all of the other ingredients together.
As with the traditional julep, East by North East is simply built in a copper julep cup before being topped with crushed ice. So it can be made in almost any pub.
