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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
