Warming Sake
« on: March 04, 2007, 12:28:20 PM »
Has anyone any idea about warming sake? I hate microwaved sake. I figure pouring boiling water into a bowl, and sitting the tokkuri in it for a little while. Any suggestions?

I just checked on a sake etiquette page, and the only two suggestions are microwave (which is out) and to put a flask of it into a bowl of warm water.
Your tastebuds can't repel flavor of this magnitude!

I find when it is microwaved it has a sterile flavor- I checked on some sights but am curious as to how long to let it sit. The only way to find out s to open that bottle I guess!

If you put the whole bottle into a pan, with something in the bottom to hold the bottle up off of the bottom (a couple of forks would do),and fill the pan with water. You can heat it on the stove, and can keep a low heat under it to keep it warm. Be sure to open the bottle first! Exploding bottles are NOT fun. You then can keep the tokkuri filled from the bottle. It should probably be warmed first so that you don't lose the heat from the sake to warm the vessel. This can be done by filling it with boiling water and then emptying it.

Do it like the Shogun used to, between the thighs of your Concubine.

I sometimes urinate into the bottle which seems to do the trick. But then I'm more than a little weird.  ::)

Seriously, a lot is dependant on your own personal taste. Often warm or hot sake, known as kansake, is usually just room temperature. However, I've used Jean-Yves suggestion more than a few times. The main thing is to watch it and make sure that the sake itself never comes to a boil as this will significantly degrade the taste.
