Monticello Liquor carries one of the wider selections of sake, shochu, and other Asian spirits available in Dallas. We are well-stocked with the most popular brands (thanks to our long-standing catering relationships with many local restaurants), but we are also one of the only liquor stores in Dallas to carry a small, boutique selection as well.
PICKING A GOOD SAKE
Pairing sake with a meal is similar to pairing wine: the goal is to enhance the flavors of both. This can be accomplished by marrying complimentary flavors or contrasting ones. We are well aware that many foods are open to being paired with sake – not only traditional Asian cuisine, but also American Favorites. If you decide to skip the formalities and pour the sake into the meal, that’s another thing. Our strongest recommendation stands: If you wouldn’t drink it, don’t cook with it! Either way, Monticello’s fine staff is ready to be your guide.
