These cold months are perfect for hot tubbing! And if one is so inclined they may want to bring sake into the steamy picture. Yes, sake and onsen or hot baths have a long history together, so it does work! But the best way to enjoy sake in the tub or hot bath is to serve warm or hot sake. And yes, this makes you warmer even faster, but cold sakeactually works against you in a hot bath. Warm with warm is the best way to go!
