My Bink’s Sake Recipe

This recipe for Bink’s Sake is my own, and hopefully, you will like it. As a fan of One Piece, I wanted to make a cocktail based on the classic song sung by Brook, “Bink’s Sake.” This song is sometimes translated as Bink’s Brew and is supposed to be standard brewed sake, not a mixed drink. But I thought it would be fun to make a mixed drink with sake as the base.

Bink’s Sake Song Lyrics (English)

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,

Gather up all of the crew.
It’s time to ship out Bink’s brew.
Sea wind blows.
To where? Who knows?
The waves will be our guide.

Over across the ocean’s tide.
Rays of sunshine far and wide,
Birds they sing,
of cheerful things,
in circles passing by.

Bid farewell to weaver’s town.
Say so long to port renowned.
Sing a song,
it won’t be long,
before we’re casting off.

Cross the gold and silver seas.
The salty spray puts us at ease.
Day and night,
to our delight,
The voyage never ends.

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,

Gather up all of the crew.
It’s time to ship out Bink’s brew.
Pirates we,
eternally
are challenging the sea.

With the waves to rest our heads,
Ship beneath us as our beds.
Hoisted high,
upon the mast,
our Jolly Roger flies.

Somewhere in the endless sky,
Stormy winds are blowin’ by.
Waves are dancing,
evening comes,
It’s time to sound the drums.

But steady men, and never fear.
Tomorrow’s skies are always clear.
So pound your feet,
and clap your hands,
till sunny days return.

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,

Gather up all of the crew.
It’s time to ship out Bink’s brew.
Wave good-bye,
but don’t you cry,
Our memories remain.

Our days are but a passing dream,
everlasting though they seem
‘neath the moon,
we’ll meet again,
the wind’s our lullaby.

Gather up all of the crew.
It’s time to ship out Bink’s brew.
Sing a song,
and play along,
For all the ocean’s wide.

After all is said and done,
You’ll end up a skeleton.
So spread your tale,
from dawn till dusk,
upon these foamy seas.

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hoho-ho,

What Does The Tamagozake Taste Like?

The Tamagozake is a Japanese cold remedy drink like how the hot toddy is in the United States. While I love hot toddies, I’m not the biggest fan of this drink. It’s both sweet and quite tart, and the flavor is not to my liking. I tried making this several times with slightly different proportions, and this is the best I could come up with. Maybe it’s because I’m not the biggest fan of sake, and this drink would taste better with another wine or spirit, but it’s an acquired taste. Don’t get me wrong; I bet if I was sick and a sweet little Japanese grandma made me this, it would be amazing. Unfortunately, as a man in his mid-30s, I do not possess that level of supreme skill yet, but it does give me a new cocktail to practice getting better with. I will provide what I believe to be the standard traditional recipe. No one can cook as well as a grandma.

How To Prepare A Tamagozake Properly.

To make this cocktail, you should be familiar with tempering, and you must have a whisk and a heat-proof container with a handle (a basic coffee mug works). Tempering combines two ingredients of different temperatures, where the colder ingredient cooks at a low temperature. The goal is to combine the two without cooking the colder ingredient. In this case, you are adding hot sake to cold eggs to gradually increase the temperature of the eggs without cooking them. You do that by having one hand whisk, the other hand slowly pour, the bowl staying in place.

  1. Whisk the egg and sugar till the mixture has thinned out and runs loose. Like a really well-mixed egg for scrambled eggs.
  2. While whisking very slowly pour the hot sake into the egg mix.
  3. Continue pouring at a constant rate till the sake and egg are mixed together.
  4. The final result should be a light semi-opaque yellow with a small foam on top. Like the photo.

You can’t add a hot liquid to eggs without cooking them. The egg parts the liquid first touches will absorb most of that heat, but constantly agitating the mixture prevents the cooked egg proteins from bonding together and forming clumps.

The Sake Bomb Chant.

Ichi, ni, san! Then boom, you pound your fists on the table, causing the shot glass to slip between the chopsticks and fall into the drink. Alcohol splashes everywhere, you then chug it, and everyone has a good time. Ichi, ni, san is Japanese for 1, 2, 3. Many popular theories have this cocktail was invented during the American occupation of Japan after WWII, but I don’t buy that. That story seems too neat and convenient to me. I’m guessing (so I’m most likely wrong), but I feel this was a gimmick drink at a sushi restaurant in the late 1970s/early 80s. Some bullshit story about it being invented during WWII was told to make it sound fantastic, and bars pushing this drink sold more high markup alcohol. I can’t prove that or have any evidence to back that up, but that seems more plausible given the type of drink this is.

What Does a Sake Bomb Taste Like?

The sake bomb is pretty good. I’m personally not the biggest fan of sake, but I find it mixes well with beer. Usually, the drink is chugged, so you never really get a chance to taste the drink, but the fruit and grain flavors of the sake are subtle enough to enhance the beer’s existing flavor without changing it too much. I rarely buy sake, but I mix it with beer when I do.

What Is The Best Beer To For A Sake Bomb?

Typically a Japanese beer is used like Sapporo, Asahi, or Kirin. Those three beers are all lagers, so lager-style beer is what you want to try and stick with. Almost all beer in Japan is a lager; only a few, like Hitachino Nest, are ale-style beers. So try and stick with one of those three if you can. Asahi super dry is my favorite of the three, but the best beer to use is the one you like at the end of the day.
