Sake Arrangement-3

Why not go further and try a sake cocktail? Don’t take it seriously, just think like “This would be my favorite if it has acidity,” and then add the juice of citrus fruit such as lemons, yuzus (Japanese citron), or mandarin oranges. You can either squeeze fresh juice or use packed juice. Other arrangements are; put strawberries into a blender and add them to sake, or put herbs in the sake like hot wine. Actually, we do have a traditional sake cocktail, which is Toso, a spiced sake. It is made by soaking Japanese pepper and dried citrus peel, etc., in the Sake and Mirin. Though most Sake has a delicate flavour and aroma, “motozake” can be the base of cocktails, which is available in the market.
Also, there is a Japanese cocktail mixed with dashi (Japanese soup stock (or broth). Depending on your liking, dashi can be used, just for flavor or as the main ingredient.
