Sparkling Sugar Plum
Sparkling sake is our New Favorite Thing™ right now, and the Sparking Sugar Plum is a recipe that truly does it justice. The flavor is divine, like some kind of exotic fuzzy-skinned fruit. The sparkling sake adds a lovely fizz that offsets the viscosity of the passion fruit puree.
Note that the recipe calls for plum wine, not plum brandy – the former is a sweet liqueur made from tart Asian plums, while the latter is a much drier eau de vie.
Shake everything (except the sparkling sake) with ice. Strain into a chilled flute or cocktail glass and top with sparkling sake. Garnish with a piece of candied ginger or a twist of lemon.
