Why I Love This Recipe

Apple cider

Apple cider, or just cider, is one of the most common ones. It is a lot closer to being apple juice than an actual alcoholic beverage and it is impossible to be intoxicated by it. However, apple cider has the same texture and feeling as other light alcoholic beverages like beer. It’s a bit thinner than the others on this list, too, making it ideal for the weight conscious. Sabatora Kajitsu has a few brands of good apple cider that you should try.

Pear cider

Pear cider is more popularly known as perry if it were made from a specific breed called a perry pear. It’s similar to apple cider in terms of content and creation process. However, perry is a lot sweeter than cider as well as having more complex properties that best show when served cold and dry. Sparkling perries are also available which add bubbles to the beverage as an alternative to champagne.

Plum wine

If you find yourself wanting to travel to East Asia, then keep a look out for wine made from ume plum that is native to China. It’s also widely available in its neighbouring countries, South Korea and Japan, as it was traded way back in the 17th century. Plum wine's alcohol content is higher than apple and pear ciders so it’s best consumed in moderation like grape wine. Other than being more refreshing than other alcohol, it’s also popular thanks to its healthful substances needed by middle-aged adults.

Cherry wine

If sweet is not the flavour you are looking for, then you should try cherry wine. It is typically sour as it is made primarily from tart-cherry. This is a lot more popular as beverages to go with a savoury meal rather than being a recreational drink. For the latter setting, the sweeter wine made from Maraschino cherries is a lot more popular.

Sabatora Kajitsu at has all types of fruit wines available. You just need to choose what you want in a drink and shop for the type of wine that suits it best. If you don’t know how to choose, then you can ask for recommendations from liquor store staff as they are experienced in selecting.

Ingredients You'll Need



Wines, champagnes, and whiskeys are popular beverages at any social gathering but a handful of people aren’t fond of alcohol. You could be afraid of its infamous side effects of intoxication or just don’t like how they taste or feel when consumed. It’s an acquired taste and you’ll get used to it the more you drink but don’t chug strong alcohol just to practice. Start with lighter beverages first like fruit wine.

There are several types of fruit wine to choose from and all of them are quite accessible for everyone. You can find cheap ones at convenience stores or more refined bottles at any liquor stores. Here are four of the best types of fruit wines that are great for new alcohol drinkers:
