Ingredients

  • 15ml crème de cassis
  • 100ml sparkling sake (we used Akashi-Tai Junmai sparkling sake)
  • orange peel twist, to garnish

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put a champagne flute into the fridge to chill. Once cold, pour in the crème de cassis.

  • STEP 2

    Pour the sparkling sake into the glass over the back of a spoon to create a layered drink. Garnish with an orange peel twist and serve.

In order to get the layered effect of the two liquids in the same glass, insert a bar spoon into the glass and pour the sparkling sake down the length of the handle
