Shot of the Week: The Haiku




It's time to pound some sake. (Dustin Dooling)

In honor of April being National Poetry Month, I’ll be doing some poetry-inspired shots. This week’s shot, the “Haiku” is a sake-based shot inspired by the Japanese short poem style.

Smooth and subtle as,

Rice and ginger served to calm—

Let the games begin

2 ounces sake

1 ounce fresh ginger beer

Shake vigorously together. Serve chilled.
