Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Awa Yuki Sparkling sake
Today I’m doing something a little different and sharing some sake I tried. Last week I was at Uwajimaya and came across this Sake on display for just $5.99! At that price, I figured I didn’t have anything to lose.
This Awa Yuki sake is made by the Hakutsuru company and it looks like this company makes several varieties. This particular one was quite tasty. It tasted of honeydew melon and pears. I haven’t had much sparkling sake and found it quite enjoyable! Sometimes I find sake overpowering, but Awe Yuki was light, sweet and of course bubbly. If you enjoy a mild Riesling I think you’ll like this, it’s a great drink for a warm day or to enjoy after a heavier meal.
Serve this sake chilled. I also like this sake because it could be paired with many things, both sweet and savory! I think it would go well with a light cake like Angel Food Cake. It would also be tasty with a sweeter entree dish like teriyaki.
I’d love to hear if you can recommend other sparkling sake brands!
