Strong umami meal


Strong umami meals such as cheese, mushroom, raw ham and soy sauce taste harmonise rich SAKE, as it enhances the meal’s umami. Scientifically a cheese goes better with SAKE than wine! Enjoy a sense of unity in their aroma.

Cocktail recipe

Highball

You may have heard a highball as a mixture of soda water and whisky. Yes spirits are used for highballs in general but recently a sake highball is also popular in Japan. Interestingly a sake highball enhances sweetness of the sake while it keeps the sake's aroma and flavour, so you can find it quite easy to drink. It's refreshing so Japanese enjoy it especially in hot Summer! To our delight, a sake highball has low calorie and fits variety of meals. It was very popular at our tasting researches!
How to make:
- Add as many ices as possible in a glass
- Pour sake in it and mix well
- Add soda water, the same amount as the sake
- (If you like) Add lemon juice or lime juice as you want
- Mix it gently

Sangría

SAKE contains nutrients which are good for your health and beauty and SAKE Sangría maximises the effect! Mix sliced fruits and SAKE, and leave it overnight. Enjoy with ices only, or add orange juice or sparkling water as you want! Fruits soaked with SAKE are also great dessert :) Refreshing SAKE matches well for Sangria. Sweet fruits go well with dry SAKE, and citrus and berries go well with sweet SAKE.


How to make:
- Mix sliced fruits and the Sake. A citrus and a berry go well with sweet Sake, while fruits with sweet flesh like a peach and an apple go well with dry Sake.
