A few weeks back I used a sake recipe for Spirit Thursday. It went over very well so here is another one that will work well at those warm September tailgate parties.
If you’re doing it right, tailgating is an all-day event. So start out classy. Plus it has the added bonus of being low calorie, low alcohol (OK, maybe not a plus), gluten-free, histamine- and allergen-free (no allergic reactions) and has 1/3 the acidity of wine so it may appeal to a certain group of party goers.
- 2 parts HIRO BLUE Junmai Ginjo Sake
- 1 part Super Premium Vodka
- 3 pieces of sliced Japanese Cucumber
Sake is an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin that is made from fermented rice. Sake is sometimes referred to in English-speaking countries as “rice wine”. However, unlike wine, in which alcohol (ethanol) is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes, sake is produced by a brewing process more like that of beer.
