Saturday Night Special! Sparkling Sake and Shakespeare

by Sarah on July 10, 2010

What’s better than a  picnic on a balmy summer’s evening?    A picnic that involves homemade nigiri sushi and sparkling sake–that’s what.

This sake is called Hana-Awaka, it comes in this darling pink bottle and it’s FIZZY.  I love it.  It is lightly sweet and not too carbonated, it goes well with sushi, sashimi, salads, as well as just a sofa and a dvd.  I buy this retail at Oto’s Marketplace for about $6.

It also paired well with a beautiful Sacramento evening in Land Park, and the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival‘s production of ‘Othello’.  I highly recommend you get out and see one or both of the productions this year.

Also playing this season is ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, one of my favorites!

Remember to bring a blanket, a low folding chair and your sushi and sparkling sake picnic!
