REALLY old Sake
While cleaning out our liquor cabinet, I found an unopened big bottle of sake--the kind that's in an ersatz cask, wrapped in "straw." It must be at least 15 years old (tells you how often I clean the liquor cabinet)! Should I just toss it, or would it still be drinkable? Any idea what to do with A LOT of sake, other than a sushi party?
I'm hoping to hear some sound ideas, in addition to all the joke responses I'm sure I'll get!
I had a bottle of sake buried in my car trunk for a few years, including being parked outside with exposure to temp extremes, but opened it with low expectations, warmed it up (which I would normally not do) and it was actually decent (the sake bar proprietor, whose warm water circulator we used, agreed with me)...you might also try mixing with gin and velvet falernum (recipe from PDT bar in NYC)...or marinate some black cod (gindara kasuzuke)
