  • A lidded jar can be used instead of a shaker. Add little metal balls into the jar to ensure aeration.
  • Yuzu juice or extract can be used instead of essence. Yuzu essence tends to be slightly salty, yuzu extract tends to be more concentrated, and yuzu juice is pasteurized, giving it a shorter shelf life.
