    Sake question...

    We've got a few good bottles of sake from Japan. (Sounds like an oxymoron to me.) I think Sake is disgusting, but there must be a reason why it is popular. My husband says the Japanese generally drink it straight and warm but foreigners mix it on ice with water or tea.

    I'm going to serve it at my Halloween party and I don't have much room for taste testing since I am pregnant. How all can Sake be served and what taste the best?


    Thank you Wolfie!

    Hey I don't know the answer to your question, but I live in Japan so I will ask around and find out what the general opinion is

    I prefer it warmed however I don't like by itself. I only drink it when I'm having sushi. There is something about the combination of warm Sake, wasabi, pickled ginger and a sashimi that make me feel good all over.

    I'm dating an asian guy (philippino) and he loves it. I'll have to ask him how he prefers it and if he knows of a couple of ways to serve it.


    Thanks, Dogz!

    It is a rice wine, but it is high in alcohol content.

    Thank you! My husband wasn't much of a drinker when he was in Japan, so I don't want to take his word for it. There might be better options!


    Thank you Wolfie!

    I couldn't even imagine it warmed, it tastes so gross as it is!

    Cool, thanks! My stepmom is filipino-chamoro, that's a good family to marry into! They're so family oriented. They'll always be there for you when you need them.

    It is like drinking warm kerosene, but with Japanese food, I love it (heated). It's great when you have the upper respiratory stuff too!!!

    My friend suggested that if it's an expensive sake, it should be served cold, but, it's either way, really. Whatever is your preference.


    Thanks, Dogz!

    My husband's Japanese so I've been indulging for quite some time now Sake is considered a wine; a rice wine. There are countless grades and methods of distillation. Some are meant to be served as aperitiffs, some to be served with food, some as an after dinner drink and others meant for simply sipping. Depending on the type, it may be more or less suitable to be served cold or warmed and some are good served both ways. I recently tried one called "Pearl" which is milky white and very sweet and tasted much like coconut!
