Sake is a Japanese wine made with rice. In a cocktail, it serves as a moderating agent to reduce the percentage of alcohol by volume in the drink and provide flavour. Sake has become an increasingly popular in variations on traditional cocktails as a replacement for vermouth in upscale bars and restaurants in the United States. These variations are then given a new name that somehow incorporates 'sake' into the name of the original cocktail.
