Japan has one of the highest rates of alcohol drinking, with up to 80-90% of the population drinking alcohol.
Drinking is a big part of society – especially those work parties (called enkai).
There’s another two things you should know about alcohol in Japan:
1. Mix any spirit with a mixer and it’s called a cocktail.
2. Vodka and gingerale (Moscow Mule) is one of the most popular cocktails.
In typical Japan style, Asahi teamed up with Wilkinson to produce canned and cheap versions of those cocktails.
