Outside of having shot with sushi or Korean BBQ, I rarely partake in sake, but I really love this drink. The flavored green tea & lime flavored ice cubes add a refreshing and crisp note, while the ginger ale gives a slight sweetness.
SAKE WITH GREEN TEA FLAVORED ICE CUBES
1 green tea bag (or tablespoon of loose green tea)
1/4 cup ginger ale
3-4 tablespoons of simple syrup
3 tablespoons of water
1 regular ice tray
3-4 oz Gekkeikan Sake (or your favorite)
Brew about 1 1/2 cups of green tea. Add simple syrup and water to green tea. Squeeze 2 teaspoons juice from lime. Add lime juice and pieces of lime peel (roughly half of the lime) to green tea mixture. Pour into ice tray. Freeze for 3-4 hours.
Pour sake into any glass. Add ginger ale. Top with 3-4 ice cubes. Cut a slice of lime to garnish. Sip and enjoy!
