Saketini Cocktail Recipe

As there are many styles and prices of sake to choose from, you can experiment with pairing the sake with gins and vodkas you like. The different experiences will all be unique, and you may find a preference for one over another. Sake is a culturally important beverage that has been drinking for hundreds of years. The higher the quality of the sake you buy, the pricier it will be but the better the experience you will have drinking on it’s own or mixing it with other drinks. It is possible to make a sake martini with either gin or vodka, and it is an excellent way to enjoy sake. Making this drink is extremely easy and makes for a great end to the dinner.

As in a gin martini, the sake serves as the vermouth, imparting a special note on the drink that the fermented rice beverage alone cannot achieve. As well as being called rice wine, sake is brewed from grain rather than fruit, so it is closer to beer than wine in terms of its methods. A sake drink that you can easily mix with several garnish options is here so that you can enjoy your sake and have fun with all the possibilities. It is even possible to choose between a few different garnishes. The drink is gluten-free since sake, vodka and gin do not contain gluten ingredients and they are distilled so they can be consumed by celiac disease victims without the risk of food allergies. It is important to remember that vodka filled with flavors can contain additives made from wheat.

Options for Garnish

It’s quite possible to dress up a saketini to fit your mood, and you can change it up to meet your needs. You can try options to modify the drink’s flavor, and they’re all worthy of experimentation just as much as the alcohol combinations. Drinks with saketinis typically have cucumber slices as a garnish. If you’re making a clean martini, using olives is a great idea. An olive martini is always a good choice when it comes to keeping it clean. If you are inclined to drink slowly, you might find that sticking with a single olive is the better choice. Quite often, three is too much especially if you tend to drink slowly.
