Beverage enthusiasts have long touted that saké has no measurable sulfites, no measurable gluten, it’s lower in calories than spirits, adds flavor and body to traditional recipes and it can be used to create amazingly diverse cocktails. Largely due to the appealing levels of acidity, alcohol, body and flavor, saké works seamlessly with spicy, fruity or floral flavors in cocktails.
Eager to gain outside perspective and inspiration from America’s most renowned mixologists, SakéOne asked their all-star mixologists to taste four diverse styles of saké (genshu, undiluted G saké, Momokawa’s Organic Junmai Ginjo, Momokawa Pearl nigori saké and flavored Moonstone saké) and come up with a collection of recipes. From San Francisco to New York by way of Portland, OR, each mixologist fashioned innovative and flavorful saké cocktail recipes. These recipes have been compiled alongside SakéOne’s private collection of recipes developed over the years to create one of the most innovative and phenomenal saké cocktail guides to date. Mixologists featured in the cocktail guide include: Lucy Brennan, owner of Mint/820 in Portland, Ryan Magarian, president of Liquid Relations in Portland and co-founder of Aviation Gin, Jordan MacKay, wine & spirits writer, author and beverage innovator, Sarma Melngailis, One Lucky Duck Founder & CEO and Pure Food & Wine Owner in New York City, Chris Johnson, certified saké sommelier and owner of Bao Noodles Restaurant in New York City and last but not least, the team at SakéOne’s kura in Forest Grove, Oregon.
Incorporating cocktail ingredients as original as Monin Jasmine Syrup (in Brennan’s Pear Flower cocktail) to maple syrup, coarse crystal date sugar and cayenne pepper (in Melngailis’ Master Cleanse-Tini)
