Q: I'm not doing it for the sake of it. I'm doing this because it is important. Does this sound natural?
A: That sounds very natural. Changing "this" to "it" might be better though. In the first sentence you use call what you are doing "it". So to be consistent it would make sense to also call what you are doing "it". The difference is that saying "it" sounds more distant. Like it is something you do, but are not doing right now. Saying "this" is more like something you are doing right now. If you said what you wrote, no one would think it weird or wrong. Just something to think about.
Q: You can order cold sake by a 1.8 litter-bottle. Does this sound natural?
A: "You can order sake by the glass" is also correct.

You can also say "by the bottle" but people won't know how much is in the bottle, so it's better to say "in a 1.8 liter bottle"

"by the" is used with very common objects (by the glass, by the bottle). It's very hard to describe how to use "by the."

You can use "in a" with anything (in a cup, in a 3 gallon jug, in a bowl).
Q: How to drink sake: Are these sentences natural English? Can you correct them, please?
