Manhattan Drinks Place Brings Bambi to the Bar

The focus at Azasu is on cup sake, individual glass jars with pop-top lids that Japanese commuters can purchase at vending machines; Japanese-inspired cocktails; and hoppy ($8), a nearly nonalcoholic beer-like beverage that is powered up with a shot of shochu, the Japanese liquor.
