Sake Tasting: Tamanohikari Premium Junmai Ginjo – Juice Box Edition

It turns a bit slushy after you pour it in the ochoko. Kind of neat reaction. I got it at The Sake Shop but I’ve seen it at other places line SWAM in Pearl City and a few restaurants in town. Taste pretty good since it half frozen, it goes down so smooth. Drunkenness and Brain Freeze.. Awesome! Besides who could resist the Juice Box Edition. It’s like sippycups for the homeys.
