Cucumber Saketini

Hipcooks Cucumber Saketini Recipe

makes 1 saketini
2 1/2 ounces sake
1 ounce vodka (or use gin)
juice from 1 lemon
Japanese cucumber

 

Peel off 1 strip of cucumber to garnish the cocktail (see picture), if desired. Then, using a Microplane, grate about 1 inch of the cucumber, skin and all! In your hands (or with a cheesecloth), squeeze the grated cucumber over a glass, and you’ll get at least a couple ounces of vibrant green cucumber juice.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, and add the sake, vodka, lemon juice and cucumber juice. Shake vigorously. Strain into your garnished martini glass.
