Ginza Mary

Ginza is a nightlife area in Tokyo. That's all I know about it. I doubt that this Bloody Mary makes an appearance there. The simple presentation of this cocktail is very Japanese, though.

I'm not sure that sake really makes this drink any different than other Bloody Mary variations, however I noticed that without horseradish, the flavors were much restrained. I also declined to use Tabasco, because I felt it would taste too South West. I grabbed another chili sauce without as much vinegar--I recommend using Sriracha or something Asian--for a better effect.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz. sake
  • 2 oz. tomato juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 3-5 dashes Tabasco sauce (or something else)
  • 2 dashes (or more) soy sauce
  • ground pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients except pepper in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into an Old Fashioned glass. Grind fresh pepper on top.
