From the bartender’s corner – Ginja Strip
This is my first sake-based cocktail. Possibly the last too. I am not sure sake makes for a good base of any cocktail.
A Ginja Strip has 2 ounces of Sake, a couple of dashes of Sweet Vermouth and one dash of Angostura bitters. Shake all the ingredients with ice and pour into a cocktail glass. Maraschino cherry is the common garnish.
Most of the palate has the blandness of a sake and to me the nose was fairly nondescript too. Would not suggest trying this one out.
