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 becoming a popular option for cocktails here in Ireland. Sake has a lower alcohol content than vodka. Asian speciality stores now stock a decent selection of sake, you will also find sake in O’Briens. However the best range of sake is available from Retrvino.
