In Japan honoring sakura, cherry blossoms, is perennial in spring. For the occasion, the Japan Society has organized a virtual celebration with a Zoom class about sakura-themed sake cocktails, including Cherry Blossom Fizz, Sakura Highball and Ichigo Cocktail (ichigo means strawberry). Participants will receive the link in advance, with recipes, lists of ingredients and equipment, and recommended food pairings. The cocktails will be demonstrated by Chris Johnson, a sake expert, and Warren Hode, a mixologist.
Sake Cocktails: Sakura Celebration, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern, $20 for members, those over 65, and students; $25 for others; japansociety.org.
