The Dirty Snow Monkey drink came about after visiting the wild snow monkeys in Jigokudani Monkey Park during a Backroads of Japan (G Adventures) tour taken in March of 2014.
All the ingredients were sourced from the local FamilyMart in Matsumoto.
Amateur mixologist and party enthusiast Sparky Jones was looking to create a drink that he could use as a keepsake of his journey through the amazing Japanese landscapes.
"A drink for anyone who wants to enjoy a taste of Japan where ever they might be in the world".
Note: This was also the first time Sparky had ever seen snow.
