Posting for World tour II. this is really good, i used to get this all the time at a bar! you could probably use vodka if you don't like sake. from

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle sake
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple (peeled and sliced into rings OR 1 cup fresh mango-peeled, pitted, and sliced into chunks)


  1. In a 4- to 6-cup widemouthed jar, make sure it's a jar you can seal, combine 1 bottle sake and 1 cup sliced fresh pineapple or sliced mango.
  2. Cover and put in refrigerator until sake has a subtle fruit flavor, about 1 week. Lift out fruit with a slotted spoon and discard.
  3. Serve cold-the sooner, the better. Leftover sake (without fruit) will keep up to 1 week when stored airtight in the refrigerator.
  4. cook time is resting time.

Ooooh! Sake is so good to begin with, but this makes it even better. I used 1/2 pineapple and 1/2 mango because I couldn't decide between the two. It was a wise decision. I also took the fruit and used it in a sake gelatin dessert I saw on Take Home Chef the other day and it was AMAZING!! Thanks for a great recipe!

Nice! It's done "cooking." I used sake and fresh pineapple chunks. Great for vodka too I'm sure. Extremely fruity and aromatic. Plus cheaper than the fruited liquors you buy in liquor stores. One question though, why discard fruit? It looked well preserved to me.
