Happy National Pokemon Day!
The following is my rendition of what a cocktail would be like if it was inspired by everyone’s favorite lighting rodent. Enjoy!
Muddle the mango and pour every ingredient into a shaker tin with ice. Shake vigorously. Double strain into your serving vessel with crushed ice. Enjoy!
P.S. this drink was a hassle to make, as far as presentation goes, so forgive the lackluster presentation.
Fortified Sake Recipe
Fortified Sake for 750ml bottle
1 cup brandy
1 cup Sake (I used Nigori saki)
2 shiso leaves
1 nori sheet
1/4 cup ginger
1/2 tsp Bonito flakes
1/4 tsp black cumin
1 tsp yuzu extract
Simmer all ingredients but the brandy in a sauce pan. Let steep until there’s no steam. Fine strain into a coffee filter.(if you want to filter out the rice residue) Add the brandy. Pour into 750ml bottle. Top off with sake.
