Kassai to World Sake Day!

Sake. One of the worlds oldest and most intricate beverages to enjoy. Here are some Sake facts, Sake favorites and Sake cocktails to help make your #WorldSakeDay that much better!.
Three things you might not have known about Sake:
1. Sake is meant to be enjoyed, slowly. Typically in a wine or stemware glass. Of course, Sake bombs are only exception.
2. Serve your Sake chilled. Rarely is Sake served warm.
3. The key ingredients in Sake are rice, water, yeast and Koji-kin, which is what’s used to ferment the Sake. Without Koji, there is no Sake.


Ever have a hard time deciding what Sake to try? Bob Calamia, Binny’s Sake Buyer, shares his Sake favorites!


Sparkling: Hana Awaka
Recommended for Sake beginners, sparkling Sake is the easiest way to open the door to the world of Sake. Sparkling sake are usually mildly sweet, but very refreshing!


Flavored: Banzai Bunny Yuzu
This slightly sweet Sake flavored with Yuzu- think grapefruit- is refreshing, light and has the right amount of citrus flavor to enjoy with a light meal such as fish tacos or a cobb salad.


Nigori: Tozai Snow Maiden
Nigori can be too sweet and low in acidity making them come off as heavy. Not this one. It has melon and orchard fruit aromas that create a great blend of freshness.


Sake: Ama No To Heavens Door
This is recommend for serious Sake drinkers. Sake at times can be overwhelming and this is a definite example of an over the top Sake. It’s wide range of subtle flavors create for an interesting Sake, never clashing but unfolding into each other. Look for pear, flowers and a slight minerality.
Sake cocktails can be a fun spin to the original cocktails you see at parties. Give this sangria or one of these TY KU Sake concoctions a try. Trust us, you and your pals will not be disappointed.
