I am Japanese and brought some international tourists who are from the US and the UK to a cherry blossom festival in Tokyo.
I recommended them to try paid sake tasting at the sake booth there.
The tasting size was 300ml and costed 300 yen for all kinds of sake brands.
All people bought the sake and they were ready to drink.

When I said “Cheers!”, all people drunk the sake (in a gulp / in a one-shot).
I was surprised to see it, because we usually sip sake slowly.
However, I know when they drink tequila at a bar, it is common to drink it (in a gulp / in a one-shot).
I should have taught them how to taste Japanese sake.
Anyway, we enjoyed drinking under the cherry trees in 50% in bloom.
We had a good time. does this sound natural?
