We will not be posting tommorow to show our love and support for the people of Japan.   A post will follow in a moment that I would be so appreciative if you could help me to spread the word about.

The cocktail this week features Sake for obvious reasons.  Please show your support in any way that you can.
 

Cloud Nineteen

2 1/2 ounces Rock Sake or other sake

3/4 ounce ginger syrup

2 1/2 ounces fresh strawberry puree

dash fresh lime juice

1 Kaffif lime leaf (optional)

Muddle all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake, strain, and serve in a martini glass.

From Good Bite’s  Blog

Good Bite’s David Lawrence has shared his favorite, now here is one more alternative. Shake things up with sake, Japanese rice wine, in place of the usual vodka or gin. Did you know that sake actually originated in China, not Japan, and is more closely related to beer than wine? That’s because sake is brewed from a grain just like beer.
