Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) sake
  • 4 organic lemons
  • 1 bunch (10 g) fresh thyme
  1. LEMON AND THYMEFirst of all, peel 4 organic lemons: you want just the yellow part, the white part would ruin the taste of the infuse. Now, pour the lemon peels into a pot, along with the fresh thyme and very cold sake.At this point, place the pot over low heat and let the sake reach the 150° F (65° C) slowly.Finally, place the pot far from the flame and let the infuse reach room temperature.Then, pour the Infuse into a jar along with the lemon and thyme, close with a lid and store into the fridge 3 days before serving.
  2. SERVING INFUSED SAKE To serve my lemon and thyme infused sake, I choose the Sober Sake Set produced by Zens. The bottle of this lovely set is perfect to keep the drink cold and pure, without any trace of water: the bottle is also a decanter with a separate space for the iced water!
