When drinking at Izakaya (informal Japanese style bar) in Japan, sometimes sake is served in this style: server put a glass inside the Masu or sake saucer and pour until sake overflows from the glass.
This serving style is called “Mokkiri” and it is said that the degree of overflowing shows the degree of the server’s generosity.

This Mokkiri beauty is Ms. Ritsuko Abe who is active as a M.C. of the events mainly in Akita Prefecture!
“I often drink sake in Mokkiri style personally, but it is a little bit embarrassing doing in front of the camera”. She answered with a shy smiling.
“Sake has a different deliciousness both in chilled style and in warm style. Depending on the way of drinking, we can also enjoy selecting the dishes for sake. Even though I have drunk sake for a long time, I’ve never been tired of its taste”.
Such a great comment as a sake connoisseur!
