Sake isn’t just for sipping. Try this spicy cocktail.
In a shaker, muddle the grapefruit and Tabasco.
Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice.
Shake, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with a grapefruit slice and a fresh mint sprig.

You could definitely substitute another type of fruit for the grapefruit. The drink won't taste exactly the same, but it'll still be delicious.
Sorry about that! We've updated the recipe to a newer version with more specific measurements.
I wonder if this would work better with Orange or Pineapple juice as substitute-can't drink Grapefruit with my BP meds...thanks
Are there no more precise measurements? Is it just to taste? I'm dying to try this, but a little clarifocation would be nice.
Okay, granted, I haven't tried this one yet--and since I'm feeling under the whether, I won't be able to for quite a few days... Is Haiku really the best sake for the job here? It sounds way too light to handle the bold flavors it is being asked to stand up to. (And what kind of grapefruit?)
I'll try to remember to post a proper review in a few days. Maybe I'll eat my words, but it sounds like a marketing ploy to sell more Gekkeikan Haiku. I mean, don't get me wrong... I use Gekkeikan to make most of my sake-tinis, and I even prefer Haiku for the Hokkaido Cocktail. But since it WAS posted by the Gekkeikan people I feel a certain obligation to be skeptical.
