Cocktail Shaker & Strainer
Sake sipping with a twist
Did you know that you can make cocktails with Saké? There are so many different types of sake which all have different flavor profiles and qualities.
For this one, we used Wakatake “Onikoroshi” Junmai Genshu, which has tasting notes of asian pear, melon, and banana. We toned down the fruit flavor notes a bit and created a spirit-forward masterpiece.
Save this one for a night that you’re having fish tacos or sushi! It’s the perfect pairing
Let’s Get Shakin’
Add saké, sherry, madeira, and elderflower liqueur to cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously until well chilled. Strain into an apertif glass, garnish with an orange zest and enjoy!
…but am I going to like it?
Getting to know your palate, what you like, and what you don’t like is a critical part of being a great craft tippler AND key to becoming a great home bartender as well!
So before you break out that barware and buy the key ingredients, here’s a little guidance on what to expect from this cocktail so you can start to hone in on exactly what elements of cocktails you enjoy and which you’d prefer to minimize. This helps you order new cocktails you love when you’re out on the town better as well!
