Sake cocktail

Sake is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made with rice. In a cocktail, it serves as a moderating agent to reduce the percentage of alcohol by volume in the drink and provide flavour. Sake has become an increasingly popular in variations on traditional cocktails as a replacement for vermouth in upscale bars and restaurants in the United States. These variations are then given a new name that somehow incorporates 'sake' into the name of the original cocktail.

Cocktails containing sake

* Caipisake or Sakerinha - a Caipirinha made with sake instead of cachaça.
* Duncan MacLeod - Coca-Cola, mixed with equal parts of Scotch whisky and sake over crushed ice. Named after a fictional character from the Highlander series, where an American actor (represented by the Coca-Cola) plays an immortal Scotsman (the Scotch whisky) with a Japanese blade (the sake).
* Nog-a-Sake - Three parts sake, one part eggnog. Of uncertain provenance, but referenced on the US version of "The Office" by character Andy Bernard (played by Ed Helms). It was used on the episode as a pun on the Japanese city Nagasaki (displaying the character's ignorance, as he says "it doesn't seem to be catching on [as a cocktail] "), and one should not try to order this at a Japanese restaurant, as it will certainly cause great offense to any Japanese staff or customers.
* Gong - 3 parts sake and 1 part PAMA pomegranate flavoured liquor hit side of glass with spoon serve chilled.
* Sake Bomb
* Sake Screwdriver - Mix 2 fl oz of sake with 6 fl oz of orange juice. Pour into highball glass with 2 or 3 ice cubes.
* Sake Manhattan
* Saketini
* Tamagozake
* Black Samurai - One part Sake, one part soy sauce, served in a shot glass. The Black Samurai was mentioned in a novelette by Larry Niven and Steven Barnes titled "The Locusts".
