dreamstime_xxl_2839558There are those who prefer traditional sake, and at Moto-i, we have that in plentiful supply. With an on-site sake brewery, we create many different types of Junmai sake, which is perfect for drinking on its own or adding to traditional cocktails. Our restaurant bar is fully stocked with sake, spirits, and liquor, and our bartenders can create the perfect cocktail for happy hour or to pair with your traditional Japanese meal.

Something Sweet

Picking the right cocktail can have a lot to do with your current mood, and what you prefer at the moment. You may have a favorite cocktail you’ve had elsewhere, and the addition of sake will add another level of flavor to your drink. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, our Good Luck Cocktail or Problem Solver is a great choice. The Good Luck features junmai sake, strawberry puree, fresh mint, and lemonade, and can be a wonderfully refreshing drink for the summer. The Problem Solver contains junmai, El Jimador tequila, elderflower liqueur, and lime soda, giving it a crisp citrus flavor.

Something Savory

If you don’t like sweet drinks, or you’d rather have something with a bit more bite, our Ginger Mistress or Moto Mule is an optimal choice. The Ginger Mistress has sake, ginger cognac, and the rim of the glass is coated in crystallized ginger. The Moto Mule is our take on the traditional mule cocktail, and contains junmai, green tea simple syrup, and ginger beer, and every glass is finished with a lime.

No matter what cocktail you’re in the mood for, our sake will make it an experience to remember. Stop by Moto-i today to try one!
