sake means: Japanese rice wine. It is essential for Japanese cuisine. It is called “Ginjo”, which means “superior.” The label also includes the term Dai-ginjo, which means “superior premium”. These are the best grades of pure rice, from which all sake is made. Futsu-shu is the lowest quality sake. It is most commonly used as a cooking wine in Japan. Honjozo-shu is a higher grade, stronger and more full-bodied. It can be enjoyed hot or cold. Junmai-shu is made with koji rice and yeast. It is typically served at room temperature. Kijo-shu is sweeter, and it is usually served as an aperitif. The “Nigori” is a cloudy, “impure”, and effervescent “Kijo-shu”, which can be slightly sweetened and served as an aperitif after consuming a meal. You can find it in Japanese supermarkets, large liquor stores and Japanese markets. (in Cooking Dictionary)
