Since this word consists of a kanji with hiragana attached, you can bet that it will use the kun'yomi reading. You didn't learn that reading with this kanji, so here's a mnemonic to help you:
What do you decide to scoop out for your guests? Cookies (く)! But not just any cookies. Cookie smoothies! They're delicious and you won't serve anyone anything else. They must drink your delicious cookie drinks.
I scooped sake out of the barrel with a ladle.
Why don't you take his opinion into consideration a little?
Please hurry up and get the sake in this cup.
