The Blushing Geisha is a sexy cocktail with a beautiful mix of flowers that is perfect for Valentine's Day or any romantic occasion. Then again, it is easy to mix up and enjoy on your own as well. If you're in the mood for a floral, fruity drink, it is a good choice.
This blush pink cocktail is light on the alcohol but the bouquet is anything but light. In it, we have a mix of the complex flavors of TY KU sake liqueur (aphrodisiacs included), luscious pomegranate juice, and rose nectar for a little herbal sweetness. Mix it up with your special someone and watch the sparks fly.
- Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice.
- Stir well.
- Strain into a stemmed glass or over ice in an old-fashioned glass.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
A Note on the Rose Nectar
Rose nectar is not an easy ingredient to find and you will have the best luck in natural food stores. If you cannot find it you can create a decent substitute by flavoring simple syrup with a little rose water.
How Strong Is the Blushing Geisha?
As I mentioned, the Blushing Geisha is a very mild cocktail and one of the lower-proof mixed drinks you can make.
It is actually lighter than a glass of wine, weighing in at just 6% ABV (12 proof).
