Sake is an integral part of Japanese cuisine in the same way as wine is to French cuisine. It’s traditionally drunk from small cups called ‘choko’ and can be served either hot or cold. It’s a popular option for cocktails and has a lower alcohol content than vodka. Asian speciality stores now stock a decent selection of sake, including sparkling sake.
