Coconut Sake Cocktail

To say there's a ton of different types of sake is a massive understatement. Besides the typical differences, there's now flavored sakes that add even more variety to the mix.

Ty Ku Coconut Sake is a nigiri sake. Nigiri sakes are known for their cloudy appearance, where a small amount of rice content remains, giving a silky texture and mouthfeel. The flavor is subtle and not too sweet, but the tropical taste reminded us of warmer days during these winter months, so we figured we'd go with that inspiration on this tiki-like drink.
