Inspired partially by the idea of winter melting away snow and the land bursting into bloom is the bright refreshing Sakura Sour. The spirit-forward Roku Umetini pays tribute to a second, less well-known spring blossom – the plum, while the Roku Mohiso offers a clean Japanese twist on the passionate Brazilian mojito.
