Tokyo Babylon Cherry Sake Splash

Finally, the first of our Tokyo Babylon drinks! This one’s for our favorite twins. We wanted to go for a light, fizzy drink that really spoke to their innocence and high energy. Cherry vodka was just too perfect to turn down, and this drink is designed to be light and gentle…just like the early part of the series. But don’t get too comfortable, the darkness is coming.

Ingredients

  • nigori sake
  • z-up
  • black cherry vodka
  • maraschino cherry

Instructions

  1. Split cherry in half, put in glass.
  2. Add vodka until cherry is covered.
  3. Fill glass halfway with sake.
  4. Fill remainder with Z-up.
