ginger saké

what is your drink? what is your call, your fancy, your favorite, your flavor?
is it a brand, a brew, a variety or a vintage?
does it involve unique ingredients, precision in proportions, or technique in preparation?
for the culinary assignment i am sharing my homemade fancy.
no top shelf bottles required. no shakers and strainers necessary.
ginger saké is neither complex nor extraordinary. it is not high end or trendy.
it doesn’t hang you over. it doesn’t blow your budget.

  • saké is not rice wine. saké is brewed from polished rice, a process more akin to making beer than making wine.
  • saké has no additives, no sulfites and no gluten. it has half the acidity of wine.
  • saké pairs with a wide range of foods. instead of competing with flavors of food, saké enhances them.
  • ginger essential oil contributes to good digestion and increases circulation. it is spicy, comforting and a well-known aphrodisiac.

ginger saké recipe:

750 mL traditional saké
1 drop ginger essential oil

  • while fine quality saké is best enjoyed cold- ginger saké is best enjoyed heated.

  • add one drop of ginger to the entire 750 mL bottle of saké and agitate gently
  • fill desired amount into a carafe (glass or ceramic)
  • immerse carafe in a pot of simmering water. never allow to boil
    (and please- never ever microwave your saké)
  • serve warm 2 -4 ounces at a time

This city street advertisement is arguably one of the most influential forms of word art, found ironically on the brick siding of a low light trendy pub on a busy downtown street. As the general masses are overwhelmed with creative new waves of marketing and advertising, word art is still a pure form of getting your message across to a consumer. This particular advertisement uses visual stimulation to draw its attention and it’s manipulation of font sizes and scattered words to keep your attention and before you know it, you are hit with that thirsty sensation to want a drink! While Jack Daniels may not be your favorite drink of choice, the use of its infamous name in subliminal wall art may still make you stop in for a happy hour cocktail.
