Sparkling sake is a beautiful ingredient that we’re glad to see appearing in more cocktails, like the lovely Sake Spritz recipe from Rich Woods at the Sushisamba restaurant chain.
Rosé wine, elderflower, and grapefruit flavors bring out the natural fruity, creamy flavors of sparkling sake, and the whole effect is fresh and effervescent.
- 1½ parts Rosé wine
- ½ part Elderflower liqueur
- ¼ part Simple syrup
- 2 dashes Grapefruit bitters
- 3 parts Sparkling sake
Add all the ingredients (except the sparkling sake) to a tall glass or wine goblet. Top with ice, and then with the sparkling sake, and stir. Add more ice if needed, and garnish with grapefruit zest and a long piece of grapefruit peel.
