For the health, safety and well-being of its staff and patrons, PinKU is temporarily closing and won’t be open this evening for Sunset Affair—we hope you are able to enjoy the evening with your choice from one of our many other restaurant partners.
What would pair well with this Japanese inspired PinKU Elixir cocktail or mocktail? Why not a selection to go from our partner restaurants standing by to deliver Sunset Affair-inspired delectables right to your door when you #sunsetathome.
The PinKU Elixir is a refreshing summer drink made with Sake, Champagne, Orange Liqueur, Pomegranate juice and fresh lime.
PinKU Elixir Recipe
Pomegranate Mixer: 2.5 ounces POM 100% pomegranate juice
2.5 ounces Simple syrup 50/50 granulated sugar and water
1 teaspoon Dekuyper triple sec orange liqueur
1.5 ounce Gekkeikan sake
Squeeze and place a lime wedge in the bottom of a glass. Flutes, roly poly or low ball are suggested.
Pour 5 ounces Korbel Brut Rosé in the glass.
Place ice in a shaker, along with the pomegranate mixer ingredients. Hand shake.
The extreme cold temperature will create more effervescence when poured over rose.
Run a channel knife lengthwise along the peel of the lime. To get the best peel for a twist, position a channel knife at the pointy end of your lime. Run the knife down the length of your lime to the other point end. Then, pluck the peel from the lime. Float in glass.
To make a non-alcoholic version, use ginger ale or club soda in place of the rosé and skip the liqueur and sake.
