Recipes in clockwise order

1. Watermelon Sake

Melon Sake

3 oz sake (I used Ty Ku for the pear undertones)
4 oz watermelon juice (prepared as described above)
splash of Ginger Juice or a 1/8″ thick disk of peeled ginger
Ice
A wedge of orange, pickled ginger, or sprig of mint for garnish

If you are using fresh ginger, muddle the ginger in the bottom of your shaker.  Fill your shaker of choice with ice.  Add sake, watermelon juice and ginger juice (if you are not using fresh) to the shaker.  Shake, shake, shake!  Pour over ice into a beautiful glass and add your garnish or just take the top off your mason jar and guzzle.
