Apart from beer, cold sake is also an excellent drink for the summertime. Mizore sake, which is also known as slushie sake, has been really popular in Japan in recent years. Have you tried it?
Japanese sake has a freezing point of around -7 to -10°C. When sake is below its freezing point (i.e. below -10°C), the molecules do not have enough time to align themselves in the ordered structure of a solid, so the sake stays in liquid form. However, when you pour the sake out quickly in one go, the sake turns into slush due to the sudden impact. This is also known as supercooling.
Here’s how you can make authentic mizore sake at home!
To make mizore sake, it is best to use a more refreshing sake. We recommend Chitosetsuru Floating Ice Ginjo, which has a pleasant green apple aroma and a light and refreshing mouthfeel. Best served very cold or as a slushie.
Wait, what? You can DIY sashimi? Yes, that’s right! In Japan, it is quite common to cut konjac into thin slices; the chewy texture and translucent appearance is rather like fish sashimi, and this dish is suitable for those watching their weight. Keep reading to find out how to create this simple summer dish at home!
