Keanu Reeves reveals his favourite cocktail

Actor Keanu Reeves described his favourite cocktail during a Reddit ‘ask me anything’ (AMA) thread over the weekend.

Reeves, who has starred in films including the Matrix and the John Wick franchise, was asked during the AMA: “What’s your favourite cocktail?”

He replied: “I was recently in Tokyo working, and was taken to a bar owned by a master cocktail maker named Ueno-san called High Five and he made some kind of sublime concoction with a smoky mezcal and green tea and some mysterious sweet liqueur, chilled. Oh my god.”

The cocktail sounds like one of the House Specials, called Japanese Garden, which is a blend of J’s whisky, Midori, and green tea liqueur. It sounds like the bartender swapped the whisky for mezcal to give the smoky twist Reeves raved about.

Further into the AMA discussion, Reeves also revealed he was a fan of Japanese whisky: “I like me some motorcycles, typewriters, Japanese whisky, playing in the band, learning, reading, and some fine red wine.”
