Raba

This is number two in the series of sake, and for this one we’ll have a variation on the mule that I’m calling Raba, which is Japanese for mule. This also incorporates a wash of chartreuse, which I have become fond of in that last month or so. Don’t forget that with a wash you only want enough to get a subtle hint of it in there, it shouldn’t be a strong flavor component. So, without any more ramblings, here we go:

 

Add to an old fashioned glass that has been washed in green chartreuse and filled with ice:

  • 2 oz Nigori Sake
  • 1 oz London Dry Gin
  • 1 dash of Regan’s orange bitters
  • top with spicy ginger beer
  • garnish with a lime

This would also make a good lunchtime or early afternoon highball if you didn’t want it to be as strong as this.
