Summer’s End is a luscious, sweet, fruity cocktail from the Moody Mixologist – one of our favorite resources for cocktails with fresh ingredients and ingenious flavor combinations. This recipe was featured on the Takara Sake website, and it’s one of the best ways we can think of for showing off the beautiful sweetness and texture of creamy nigori sake.
Unfiltered apple juice is best here, although typical apple juice is fine if that’s what you’ve got.
- 2 whole Strawberry
- 2 parts Nigori sake
- 1 part Apple juice
- ½ part Lemon juice
- ¼ part Orgeat
Muddle strawberries in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and garnish with an apple fan and an edible flower.
