Any great sushi experience can be elevated to a spectacular experience if you pick the right accompaniment. Kabuki offers a variety of great cocktails to fit a wide range of tastes, from traditional classics to trendy new concoctions. Even with other Japanese dishes, drink selection can improve the overall quality of your meal.
So how do you choose the right cocktail for your happiest sushi happy hour? Here are a few suggestions featuring sake, the traditional Japanese rice wine, that will fit in well with sushi and Japanese cuisine:
Saketinis are all the rage at the moment. A saketini is a flavored martini cocktail with sake substituting for vermouth. Saketinis are flavorful and light, with a host of fruity flavor options that make them complement a sushi selection nicely.
Sake bombs are a favorite for groups of friends who are looking for a night of entertainment and exciting food. To get the real sake bomb experience, balance a small cup of sake on chopsticks above a glass of Japanese beer, then yell “Kanpai!” as you slap the table to drop the sake into your beer.
Sake is such a versatile drink that it can add its distinctive taste to a variety of cocktail mixes to make them pair well at the sushi bar. If you are a fan of sangria, then try it with sake for an all-new twist on an old favorite.
Chu-hi is commonly thought of as the Japanese highball. Your sake bar drink specials turn chu-hi into a classy drink by mixing Japanese shochu with sake. Chu-hi, like saketinis, come in a selection of flavors to match the mood of the evening.
Whatever your tastes, Kabuki is sure to have a drink that is just for you. These sake selections are only a few of the options available. Martinis, mojitos, mai tais and daiquiris are all available at Kabuki, your local sushi bar. Come visit us today for a memorable and exotic taste experience.
