Arigatou, Gomen Nasai | Cocktail Party

Arigatou, Gomen Nasai

Arigatou, Gomen Nasai cocktail with nigori sake, lemon juice, strawberry syrup, orgeat, and egg white

This recipe started its life as a “Spicy Strawberry Nigori,” from the website of the Takara Sake company. We found it to be overly-sweet, but with lots of potential. We reworked the proportions and re-christened it with a name we accidentally invented as we fumbled our way through greetings in Japan (it means “Thank You, I’m Sorry” – a surprisingly useful sentiment for a visitor!)

A Japanese spice blend like shichimi togarashi makes for a beautiful garnish sprinkled over the egg white foam, especially if you use a stencil to make a pretty pattern. If you don’t have that, a light dusting of freshly-ground black or pink peppercorns will be just lovely.
