Yuzu is a small, intensely sour fruit used widely in Japanese cuisine, with a flavor somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange. It has become popular with bartenders and pastry chefs here for its unique tang, which gives these Trixy Stix a nice punch of flavor.
Special equipment: You will need a very clean coffee or spice grinder for this recipe.
You will also need about 20 (8-inch) paper straws.
To fill the paper straws, you will need a couple of pieces of paper, to cover your work surface and make a funnel with—any kind of paper will do. Alternatives to a paper funnel are a No. 16 Open Star or No. 5 Round piping tip. You will also need a toothpick.
What to buy: Yuzu juice can be found in the ethnic aisle or freezer section of well-stocked gourmet or ethnic grocery stores, or you can buy it online.
