Sparkling sake

I love fizz. I’m an absolute whore for a glass of fizz. And Champagne’s an expensive habit, so I’m always pleased to find a delicious Cava or Prosecco I can trick my tastebuds with.

Not long ago I got to go and try the delicious grilled sticks and Scandi-tinged sushi at Sticks’n’Sushi, a brilliant recent addition to Covent Garden, and discovered a surprise new favourite – sparkling sake. Having had a couple of sake-based cocktails, my friend and I decided to share a half bottle, and while it’s no champers, it’s absolutely delicious in its own right. Lightly sparkling and with a slight edge of refreshing cucumber or melon. I could have drunk a gallon of it (we didn’t).

Get your fix:

Four places to try it in London:
1. Sticks’n’Sushi, Covent Garden
2. Sake No Hana, Mayfair
3. Chotto Matte, Soho
4. The Magazine at the Sackler Gallery, Hyde Park
