"" The Exhausted Mom: Thirsty Thursday ~ Fuji Sunset

Thirsty Thursday ~ Fuji Sunset

Recently at Mom 2.0 Summit in Key Biscayne, Florida, I met Jessica Fini the Assistant Manager for Public Relations for Honda.  We were talking about my Thirsty Thursday meme, and she asked me to help her find a cocktail using sake.  Jessica is getting married soon, and her soon-to-be husband is of Japanese descent.  

Her venue for the wedding will only allow beer and wine to be served.  They consider sake to be in the wine family.  Since there will not be any other alcohols available, she put me on the hunt for a sake cocktail that could be served so that it appears to be more of a cocktail.  CHALLENGE!

1 1/2 oz Sake
1 oz Maraschino liqueur (Maraschino juice can be substituted)
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz orange juice
Dash grenadine


Shake with ice and strain in chilled champagne saucer or martini glass.  Garnish with a Maraschino cherry.

This would be a great companion to a sushi feast!
Tanoshimu! (Enjoy!)

  1. How awesome that you found one and a worthy one I might add. This would be an amazing addition to their wedding! Have a good day Alexis!
