Aug 31 2020 - Blog

In the mood for a glass of fruity cocktail that tastes closer to home? Discover sakegria, the delightful fusion of fruit + sake! This exciting beverage adds a Japanese twist to the well-loved Spanish sangria.

What Is Sangria?

Sangria is an alcoholic drink originally from Spain and Portugal. It is traditionally made with red wine as a base, along with different types of chopped fruit such as peaches, berries, apples and oranges, depending on the recipe. Some additional features include brandy, sparkling water or carbonated drinks.

As a punch, sangria is always made fresh to ensure the best flavours of the fruit. It can be drunk hot or cold, according to your preference.

Sangria’s popularity has surged across international borders, with bars all over the world creating their unique styles. Many fruity wine lovers even mix their own flavours at home! Of these, one interesting rendition is the Japanese sakegria.


Sakegria: The Japanese Answer to Sangria

The Japanese sakegria is a beautiful mix of delicious fruit and sake. With the bountiful fall harvest, it was only natural to combine the season’s best fruits with quality sake for a fresh and zesty concoction. The fruit infusions range from yuzu to figs (ichijiku), persimmons (kaki), mandarins (mikan) and many more… as far as your imagination takes you!

Best paired with seafood, spicy food and nutty or savoury biscuits, sakegria is ideal for a lavish home-cooked meal.
