So I hadn't had sake since I was young (didn't like it then) but I decided to give it another whirl - picked up an inexpensive bottle of Geikkeken, no descriptor on the label but I guess it's the Junmai.

I tried it the ways described on the label - heated to 105 degrees, over ice, I also had it neat at room temp and chilled a glass in the freezer until it turned slushy. Neat it reminded me a little of dry vermouth (I've only had a cheap one, Gallo I think it was.)

It was interesting enough that I might try a better bottle at some point, but I am not going to rush out and look for more.

I have half a bottle left and was curious to see if anyone had interesting cocktails recipes using sake. I found a couple that I liked.

the Italian Samurai:

4 parts sake

2 parts sweet vermouth

1 part amaretto

pour over ice and stir

Hokkaido cocktail:

1 1/2 oz gin

1 oz sake

1/2 oz triple sec

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and serve.

and I made one of my own devising, haven't named it but it was pretty decent:

1 part gin

2 parts sweet vermouth

2 parts sake

splash aperol

over ice and stir

Any other suggestions would be welcome.
