We wanted something special to greet our guests at my husband’s birthday party. We served cold sake shooters with a twist.
The anniversary cake theme was classic video games which most come from Japan. Serving sake at the start announced the end. We wanted something playful. That is when I remembered my Fred cool shooters ice mold.
I made in advance 40 ice shooters. I kept them in large freezer bags. We displayed them on ice after the first guest arrived. You have between 45 to 60 minutes before the ice shooters become unusable. It is best to keep half on the freezer, until you need them.
We served women the pink bottle sake while the men received a shot from the blue bottle. The girls enjoyed the creamy white Hakutsuru Sayuri Nigori Sake with its refreshing aroma, natural sweetness and smooth aftertaste. The guys tasted the flowery fragrant Hakutsuru Junmai Ginjo sake with silky, well-balanced smoothness.
Our cold sake shooters were a hit. With an original, easy to do setting, we created a lasting impression.
