Sake: How long will keep + your favorite drink/food recipes

arielleeve | Jan 8, 2014 08:52 AM

So I bought a $10 bottle of Sake from the Trader Joe's wine store this week, to use in the Nobu miso-marinated black cod recipe (it was fantastic). It was actually my first time buying or cooking with Sake, which I don't particularly enjoy drinking straight up. I only used 1/4 cup and the rest of the bottle is now in my fridge. So my questions are:

1) How long will it last in the fridge? I guess there might be two answers depending if I want to use it just for cooking or for drinking.

2) What are you favorite recipes that use Sake, if I need to finish up the bottle quickly? I've found a ton of Asian fish/seafood recipes that call for it, but was hoping for something a little different as I've been eating a lot of that kind of dish lately. Also, most of those recipes only call for a few tablespoons of sake, and I have a whole bottle to get through in what I'm guessing is a fairly short period of time before it goes bad (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm open to anything vegetarian/pescetarian, as well as mixed drink recipes. I don't like sake straight up, but I probably wouldn't mind it in mixed drinks of some sort. I'm thinking a cocktail might be a better way to use a lot of it up.
