base and flavored non
There are many flavors of sours, such as:
Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Ume, Apple, and Calpis
can be found at most any izakaya
and sometimes at bars. They are usually the cheapest drink on the menu. A good izakaya
will give you a lemon, lime, or grapefruit to squeeze into your drink.
Sours are usually served in jyokki, but usually can be ordered in a plain glass. Compare and notice the difference between a chuuhai and a sour; carbonation and non-carbonation.
