Sake might not be the drink that pops into mind when you think of barbecue, but its elegant flavor makes it the perfect option to mix with other summery drinks. And when you think summer, what other drink pops into mind than lemonade?
This tangy concoction is perfect for your next barbecue. The best part is you can make it in large batches and bring it with you when one of your friends invites you to their next bash. Of course, make sure to keep an eye on it so the kids don’t take a glass.
Sake has the same amount of alcohol content as wine so while it might not taste strong, it definitely packs quite a punch.
INGREDIENTS FOR SAKE TO ME
- ¼ ounce of crème de cassis
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- 2 ounces of filtered sake (though you can try the unfiltered kind for a more distinct flavor)
- Highball glass
- Fill the highball glass with ice.
- Pour in all ingredients into the glass and stir with the spoon
- Garnish with a lemon.
- Top with club soda for some extra fizz.
If you want to make a large batch of this drink the ratio is 1:4:4:8 (cassis, simple syrup, lemon, sake). Don’t add in any ice to your pitcher as this will dilute the mixture. Instead, add the ice to your cup and pour the drink over it. This will definitely be a huge hit at the next party so make sure to bring enough for seconds and thirds.
