Conscious of stay-at-home protocol, "Ponshu-gria", a combination of sangria and "nihonshu" (Japanese sake), has become a popular way of enjoying hot sake without needing to head to a bar or pub. Ponshu-gria, a lineup of jars filled dried fruits, beet sugar, and light brown sugar functions as a make-it-yourself sake sangria intended to be used with atsukan. Ponshu-gria is now embracing its warming nature even more by providing two new flavors--Minestrone and Clam Chowder, which means you can now enjoy instant hot sake soup at home! The new Ponshu-gria Minestrone and Clam Chowder flavors turns the lineup on its head with the concept of "soup cocktails". Each jar contains a base that recreates the soup's flavor, and simply require a half-and-half mixture of hot water and hot sake to almost instantly create a soupy and boozy cocktail in a jar. Minestrone Clam Chowder The two new soup cocktail flavors, as well as others such as yuzu, Japanese oden, and the original fruity variations, can be ordered online in Japan from Ponshu-gria's online store.
