There's a green apple flavored sake I found in the US that I *love* but don't tend to care for them in general. Guess you just have to find the right flavor(s)! :)
These kinds of flavoured rice wines are a new invention. Maybe to be able to export or reach customers who normally don't care for the taste of the traditional brew.
Sake! a little goes a long way. Where's that designated driver?
How fun!..Hope you are settling in to your new environment. My husband introduced me to Sake many years ago and nope, didn't like it at all, but I loved the decanter it came in, which was a gorgeous porcelain Kabuki dancer.
