Yuki Ringo | Cocktail Party

Yuki Ringo

Yuki Ringo cocktail with nigori sake, pear liqueur, apple juice, pear juice, cinnamon syrup, and lemon juice

Sake’s gentle flavors are a natural match for apple and pear, and nowhere is that better-expressed than in the Yuki Ringo, an autumnal sour served at the Azumi restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore.

The star of the show is creamy, cloudy nigori sake, a type of sake left mostly-unfiltered, with snow-white unfermented rice particles offering a smoother taste and a rich, velvety body. For the pear liqueur, Azumi uses St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur – but any pear liqueur you like will be delicious, so long as it’s on the sweet side.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
