Grapefruit Honey Sake Cocktail is a bright and refreshing drink that takes just a few minutes to make. It's perfect for a hot summer day and is a delicious way to enjoy sake!


1/4 cup sugar
3 cups fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1 cup sake
4 tbsp honey
Grapefruit cut into small wedges for garnish
2 sprigs of thyme for garnish


Pour the sugar onto a plate.  Take two glasses and wet the rim with a grapefruit wedge.  Turn each glass rim-side down onto the plate of sugar and turn the glass until the rim is evenly coated with sugar.
In a small pitcher, add the grapefruit juice and honey.  Stir until the honey is incorporated.  Add ice to the glasses and pour the grapefruit juice in each glass.
Top the glasses with a half cup of sake each and stir.  Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and sprig of thyme.
