Are you a sake lover? Needless to say, the sake that you drink at a restaurant with a good atmosphere and delicious food is exceptional. The discerning restaurants always have a particular commitment to their tableware. What you can do at home is limited. Neither redecorating your home nor elaborate cooking by a skilled chef at a Japanese restaurant can be done.
Then, why not devise a sake cup for pouring sake?
“A cho-ko cup is for sake.” This is of course many people’s go-to, and it can be said that it is a symbol of the Japanese heart and pride in sake.
However, you can create a “savvy impression” just by changing the cup, and you can enjoy another scent. It’s a simple matter, so I’ll introduce it to you along with a little adventure.
Let me introduce some.
1) normal type cho-ko cups
・The size is a cho-ko cup, but it has a colorful design, and it definitely brightens the table! It’s fun to search for your favorite design and crafts.
2) high-grade glasses
・Your heart may stop if you break it (surely you do)… Baccarat glass is also recommended. If the glass is high-class, you may be immersed in the feeling that the taste is upgraded.
・The size can be large, such as for drinking brandy, or a small Baccarat antique item which will also make you feel up.
* You feel great while drinking, but if it breaks or cracks, you may need some time to get recovered.
3) It doesn’t have to be luxury: Wine Glasses
・Large capacity “wine glass for beer”
・General-sized “wine glass”
・Long-shaped “champagne glass”
You can see the color of sake, and enjoy the aroma by spinning the glass. Pouring plenty of sake is not elegant. Pour an appropriate amount and enjoy a drink while watching a movie on the sofa.
4) fully enjoy sake without seeing the inside
・Tin material cho-ko cup
・One-of-a-kind item of pottery (There are various items such as Arita ware and crockery)
Although tin is expensive, it’s perfect for cold sake. It has an excellent cooling effect. You will feel a pleasantly cool sensation the moment your lips touch it.
Each pottery has a different expression. If you can find your favorite one, you will treat it like your own child.
What do you think about it? Don’t you think that if you change your sake cup and change your mood, the sake lover level will increase further? Let’s give it a try!
