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.

“I like to start with sake more than beer when I have a drinking party. I prefer to chilled sake more than warm one and do “mokkiri drinking” by myself quite often. Every time I have a drinking party, I give a presentation about the goodness and attraction of sake to people who love beer”. As if she is a chairperson of sake association, she gave us such an ideal comment!
