The domestic sake brand that’s on everyone’s lips, Rock Saké hails from Oregon and is increasingly earning placement on menus by the bottle as well as in cocktails. At Bellagio’s Petrossian Bar, assistant beverage director/mixologist Matt Myers incorporates Rock Saké’s “Cloud” nigori sake into an espuma atop his Nigori Aviation ($12). The lighter-than-air foam takes on Rock Saké’s floral melon skin and rambutan notes and tops Myers’ Japanese ode to this classic violet gin cocktail. At Planet Hollywood, Koi Restaurant & Lounge employs Rock Saké’s Junmai Ginjo sake along with muddled cucumber and wasabi essence for the popular Curiously Cucumber cocktail ($14). RockSake.com.
