6. Lemon-Do

Soft drinks heavyweight Coca­Cola made its first foray into the world of alcoholic beverages last year, with the launch of a low-­abv shōchū-based ready-­to-­drink brand, called Lemon-­Do.

The range is still available exclusively in the Kyushu area of Japan and comprises three canned expressions – Lemon­-Do Teiban Lemon, Lemon-­Do Salty Lemon and Lemon-­Do Honey Lemon.

It was inspired by Japanese pubs and the Lemon Sour, which was the origin of popular Japanese beverage Chūhai. To create Lemon­-Do, a whole lemon is grated and soaked in alcohol before being mixed into the drink.

Each expression boasts a different alcohol­-lemon composition. Lemon-­Do Teiban Lemon is made up of 10% lemon juice and 5% alcohol; Lemon-­Do Salty Lemon has a composition of 7% lemon juice and 7% alcohol; and Lemon­-Do Honey Lemon features 7% lemon juice and 3% alcohol.
