The Tokyo Sky Tree Cocktail Recipe by BAR Nekomataya

I owe my friend two times over.

First, for introducing me to the wonderful BAR Nekomataya, about an hour or so from Tokyo in Tochigi Prefecture. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the bartender the best cocktail I’ve ever had. He went by only my vague iteration of my favorite kinds of drinks: “sweet and milk based”.

Second, I owe my friend for taking this picture of the Tokyo Sky Tree Cocktail I ordered.

The official Tokyo Sky Tree Cocktail was actually created by the master bartender of BAR Nekomataya. Now it can be found in bars and restaurants all over Japan.

I was curious how the Sky Tree Cocktail was made. Thus, I took to the internet to search for the bartender’s blog.

He posted the Tokyo Sky Tree Cocktail recipe on his blog. I’d like to share it here in English, along with the directions to BAR Nekomataya.

  • Bols Natural Yoghurt Liqueur    20 ml
  • Bols Blue                                               10 ml
  • Tonic water                                             120 ml


Place ice and a (blue) illumination cube into the glass. Pour in and mix the ingredients.

There is a big difference in taste if you substitute Bols for another liqueur, so please use Bols.
