We christened my new sake set last night with a nice cheap bottle of sake from the HEB. I followed Nick's advice and heated up the sake in a bowl of warm water, which seemed to do the trick. After transferring the sake into my little decanter, I made Josh play by the sake drinking rules where you never pour your own drink, but you always pour for the other person. We neglected, however, to yell BANZAI! at each other every time we took a drink. More photographic evidence here.
