March 26, 2010: Champagne-Plum Wine Cocktail

March 26, 2010

Today’s Japanese Fusion recipe is Chef Saito’s signature cocktail. He starts by taking a fine champagne and making it more interesting by adding a small portion of plum wine and topping it off with fruit slices. Chef Saito considers ordinary cocktails too sweet and heavy. The champagne-plum wine cocktail compliments food better, particularly lighter appetizers like sashimi and sushi. One of Chef Saito’s clients said she liked this cocktail, although she never really liked champagne!
