Welcome to On Demand, a new recipe column in which Eater invites readers to request cocktail recipes from restaurants and bars across the country.

Colicchio & Sons

"Last winter I stopped into Colicchio & Sons for a quick drink. One cocktail that caught my eye listed a bunch of Asian ingredients popular in savory cooking. I wasn't entirely sold that they'd work well in a cocktail, but the drink turned out to be entirely delicious and I can't stop thinking about it! I also loved that it wasn't too sweet. If you're a fan of sake and Asian flavors in general, this drink is a must try. Could you get the recipe?" -Samantha B, New York
