Sake, also known as Japanese rice wine, is a delicious and unique ingredient that can be used to make a variety of cocktails. One of the most popular sake cocktails is the Sake Martini, which is made by combining sake with vodka and a splash of dry vermouth. The result is a smooth and crisp drink that’s perfect for sipping on a hot summer day. To make a Sake Martini, you will need:
- 2 oz. sake
- 1 oz. vodka
- 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
- Lemon twist, for garnish
Pour the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist. The Sake Martini is a great way to introduce sake to your cocktail repertoire. The mix of flavors from the sake, vodka and vermouth creates a unique and delicious drink. Sake itself has a unique taste, it is typically less alcoholic than wine or other spirits and has a delicate sweetness to it that can be a great addition to the cocktail.
