Pink Gojira Recipe

Sake is a light ingredient when used in cocktails, and it’s easy for it to be overwhelmed by other ingredients. That makes getting everything just right vitally important when making sake cocktails—especially in the case of the Pink Gojira. The Pink Gojira was created by Tena Jahangosha for Liaison Capitol Hill, a Joie de Vivre Hotel, in Washington D.C. and was inspired by the cherry blossoms in the capital city. It’s made with Ty Ku sake, St-Germain, simple syrup, lemon juice and lavender bitters. Jahangosha advises that everything needs to be precisely measured. “Using even just a drop more or less of one ingredient can throw the balance off,” Jahangosha says. “It’s a very delicate drink.”
