What We’re Sippin’ This Spring!!!

By Tara Babins

BOOZE, Cocktails, Ronin, Sunday’s Grocery

Ah, spring. The sun is shining, the drinks are calling, and it’s the perfect time to try something new – whether that’s a new cocktail, highball, or bottle of sake! The best beverages for this season are light, bright, and refreshing. And since you’ve been willing the seasons to change, they should also feel appropriately strong. Read below to check out our favorite springtime sips:

Highball: Danryu Danball

It’s hard to find a highball that’s more refreshing than the Danryu Danball. Made with awamori instead of the traditional Japanese Whisky, this is the highball you’ll get when you’re in Okinawa. The Danball is sour, savory, simple, and did we mention refreshing?!

50 ml Kamimura Danryu Awamori
1/2 Lime, Freshly Squeezed
Wilkinson Soda Water
Lime Wedge for Garnish

1. Pour the awamori and lime juice into a collins glass
2. Fill the glass with ice
3. Top up with soda water
4. Stir with a bar spoon, lifting as you stir
5. Garnish with lime wedge

Cocktail: Last Word

The Last Word may be a classic cocktail but it’s also quite modern in its own right. It was invented before Prohibition but it’s beloved by today’s cocktail makers and cocktail enthusiasts alike. The mix of gin, maraschino liqueur, green Chartreuse, and lime gives the Last Word a spring-like green hue and despite the fact that it’s strong, this cocktail is very easy drinking.

25 ml Fords Gin
25 ml Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
25 ml Luxardo Maraschino
25 ml Green Chartreuse

1. Combine gin, lime juice, maraschino, and green Chartreuse into a cocktail shaker
2. Hard shake
3. Double strain into a cocktail glass

Sake: Ohmine Junmai Daiginjo Nama AND Ohmine Junmai Ginjo MNG

Ohmine Junmai Daiginjo Nama
This unpasteurized (nama) sake is seasonal, fresh, and produced using the shizuku method from Ohmine Shuzo. A clean and pure junmai daiginjo, this sake has  roundness and deep aromas of tangerine and orange blossoms, plus a unique nutty flavor that comes from it being “nama.”

Ohmine Junmai Ginjo MNG
This sake also comes from Ohmine Shuzo. With soft aromatics of white peaches and orange blossoms, this junmai ginjo takes a step back from the clean and delicate nature of the daiginjo and reveals a more full bodied and robust expression, which comes from it being “muroka nama genshu.” Produced using the shizuku method, it retains that purity and elegance of the Ohmine line but incorporates more backbone and character.
