We try Japanese candy maker recipes on how to make hard candy drinkable

Japanese candy maker Lotte, who loves to use her products creatively, shared some tips on how to make two sweet drinks using some hard candy: Koume Hot Lemonade, a plum-flavored lemonade pickle, using the popular Koume hard candy, and Fruit Nodoame green tea, using candy Solid Nodoame fruit. Our reporter Aoi Kuroneko decided to put these recipes to the test.

I tried Koume Hot Lemonade juice first. The recipe calls for 6 candy coms, 1/4 cup room temperature water (or cold water), 2/3 cup hot water, half a lemon, and 3/4 tablespoons sugar.

At first I dissolved the sugar in hot water. Aoi used cane sugar, so the water looks a little brown.

Next, I put the room-temperature water in a saucepan with six candy-comes. She heated them until they melted. Make sure to flip it over while it’s heating up, or it will stick to the bottom of the pan.

ta da! She finished making her own kom.

Finally, she added lemon to the melted sugar and then added kom syrup to that. Before we show what the final product looks like, let’s see how to make Fruit Nodoame Green Tea.

For this recipe, she needed many of the same ingredients as the hot lemonade: 4 Nodoame Fruits, 1/4 cup room temperature (or cold water), 2/3 cup hot water, and 1 green tea bag.

First, soak a green tea bag in hot water. You can leave it steep as long or as short as you like.

As with the hot lemonade, dissolve the four desserts with some water in a saucepan to make the fruity syrup.

Finally, she mixed a fruit drink with green tea to complete her drink.

Here’s how her drink came out! I thought the light pink color of the hot Koume lemonade was cool, and the green Nodoame fruit tea sounded refreshing. When she tasted the hot Koume lemonade, she was struck by a puff of sweet and sour flavors. I thought it was a great pairing like lemon and honey. If you like sour drinks, this might be the next step.

Aoi didn’t have high expectations for Fruit Candy Green Tea because she only added four lozenges, but was pleasantly surprised by the overall flavor. Although it wasn’t too sweet, Fruit Nodoame contained herbal ingredients that gave the green tea a more complex flavor than if it had just added sugar, for a very refreshing result.

The biggest lemon that AOI has learned is that hard candy isn’t just for eating. They are also great for adding sweetness and flavor to drinks. You’d probably do this with any hard candy, and Aoi notes that it tastes cold too.
