Sake is delightful on its own, but sometimes you want to shake things up a little bit.

From bright and refreshing to cozy and warming, these are some of the city’s most varied, endearing and exciting sake drinks.

New kid on the block Cru is serving up a ridiculously good cocktail made with sake, mint, honey and lavender. The taste is smooth, soft and supple, but still holds onto a refreshing almost-bite. Trust us… it tastes like magic.

The sake bomb at Kinka is the perfect order if you want to fuse flavour with energy. A shot-glass of sake is rested on chopsticks over a glass of beer. First, you slam the table until the sake falls into the brew and then you chug it back. It tastes great, and it’s a lot of fun.
