shaken, not stirred

What’s your favorite drink or cocktail? What’s in it?
Question submitted by charm.vox.com

I’m a sucker for Wild Ginger’s mango daiquiri — heavenly! This should be no surprise to anyone who knows me. Unfortunately, I’ve no idea how to make one at home, but in a pinch a Sapphire & tonic will suffice, anytime.

Oh! Have you heard of sake bombs? Balance some good sake in a sake cup (or a shot glass if you’re without) on two chopsticks bridged over the mouth of a tall glass or mug of dry Japanese beer (e.g. Asahi or Sapporo). Yell, “sake bomb!” and bang your fists on the bar so that the sake, container and all, falls into the beer (this may take two or three tries, depending on the size of your fists, or the bar — just my experience). Proceed to imbibe.

So messy, but verrry smooth. Mrowr.
