Japanese Orange Breeze

Japanese Orange Breeze cocktail with sake, orange juice, and sparkling water

The Japanese Orange Breeze was featured in an episode of Love is Like a Cocktail, an adorable series of anime shorts about a bartender who loves to make cocktails for his hard-working office-lady wife.

This is a simple drink that offers a lot of creative leeway. You can use a clear junmai sake or a sweet, milky nigori. You could use yuzu, blood orange or tangerine juice instead of orange juice. You could even swap out the plain sparkling water for a one with a citrus flavor, if you’ve got one you like.

Ingredients

Instructions

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
