White Cloud Recipe

Nigori, a milky white sake with a name that roughly translates to cloudy, is an unfiltered style that can be a versatile base in fuller bodied sake cocktails. The bar team at ROKU, a Japanese restaurant on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, uses nigori for its White Cloud cocktail, playing off of the coconut and orange blossom flavors in Rock Cloud Nigori to create a drink that’s essentially a light sake take on a Piña Colada. The coconut puree makes it full enough to drink in the wintertime, but the drink is light enough to be a nice summertime sipper.
