Your tolerance for even hearing the word vodka has worn thin. Well turn to the East, my child. Here’s a great sake cocktail to relieve you from you vodka blues. It’s easy to make, tastes great and looks super cool.


The Rising Sun

2 oz Nigori Unfiltered Sake

¾ oz Green Tea Liqueur

1 Fresh Mint Sprig

½ oz Homemade Grenadine

Shake Sake, Green Tea Liqueur and Mint Sprig with ice and strain into a Martini Glass. Carefully pour in Homemade Grenadine which will fall to the bottom of the white drink, causing the cocktail to resemble the Japanese flag.
