The Japanese Slipper Cocktail recipe may be a little retro but there is something so fun about the drink, I’ve always thought. Fabulous to look at, lower in alcohol than other drinks and it’s one you can easily make in a large jug for a crowd, it balances sweet and tart wonderfully. Don’t forget the cherry!
