Shiba Dog

The Shiba Dog is a simple recipe from the Hakushika Sake company, but it’s elegant in that simplicity. Sake and grapefruit juice are a pleasant combination, and low-proof enough to justify some leisurely day drinking.

Since the ingredient list is so short, you’ll get much better results from a higher-quality sake and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. Pink or white grapefruits are equally delicious, but we recommend against designer varieties like the Oro Blanco, which are bred to be very sweet, not bitter, and unfortunately quite boring in a drink like this.

Many spirit-and-grapefruit cocktails benefit from a salt rim, but we tried it with the Shiba Dog and found that the salt muted the delicate flavors of the sake a bit too much for our liking. A very light dusting of salt on one side of the glass is as far as we’ll go.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you want a salted rim, begin by rubbing the cut side of a grapefruit around the edge of a short glass and roll it in a plate of salt.

Add ice to the glass, then the sake, followed by the grapefruit juice. Give it a quick stir, and enjoy.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
