Friday Happy Hour: Raspberry Sake Cocktail Recipe

Raspberry Sake Cocktail I typically only drink sake when I’m on a sushi date with The Pants, which rarely happens. (I should figure out how to find a babysitter at some point.) This was the first time I bought sake to drink at home, and I wanted to make it into something a little special. It took a few tries to find the right balance of flavors in this sake cocktail, but this version was just right.

Oooooo… this sounds delish! I used to get a saketini at a sushi place I used to go to in Columbus. They used to make it with cucumber? Oh my… was it tasty. I keep thinking I need to try and re-create it. ;)

Ooh, cucumber sounds good too! Maybe I’ll try that next time. Headed over to your Pinterest party now…

I love this idea! I only have sake on sushi dates as well :)

Thanks, Lilly Sue! I still wouldn’t say I know anything about sake, but I think when you add flavor to it you can cover up a mediocre bottle ;)

it tastes like a flower :-) Lovely! I’m impressed by your taste buds–perhaps you should pursue a career in mixology? ;-) I really really like this one.

Thank you, Liz! So glad you like it! It’s funny you say it tastes like a flower because I was originally planning to use an edible flower instead of whole raspberries. Then I realized that was too fussy, and I didn’t have time to go all over the place looking for edible flowers.

Thanks for coming back, Lisa! :) These drinks are nice because they are just made with sake, so you can have a few, unlike some of my stronger cocktails from Fridays past. I am so nervous leaving my kids with anyone, and we don’t have family around here. The kids would probably think it was fun to have a babysitter come over now that they are getting older, so I should work on finding someone!

That will do the trick :) I think 3 or 4 might be in order tonight. Yes, do find a babysitter. I didn’t do that enough and now I wish I had!
