A Toro Nagashi is a Japanese ceremony in which people float paper lanterns
down a river to commemorate the souls of the dead.

Strawberry Sake


Over the weekend, my husband and I infused sake with two pints of fresh strawberries. Two days ago, I did the first straining to remove the strawberries.  Today, the sake went through a second filtering to remove any bits of strawberries that remained after the initial straining.    We are going to pour our first glass tonight!

Do you want to try making this kind of infused sake at home?
Here is the recipe!
