Friday Drink Recipe: Cucumber Sake-Tini

Serves 2
We warn you that this martini is absolutely lethal, because the cooling cucumber masks the potency of the gin. The sake adds a little "je ne sais quoi" and the mint heightens the overall floral bouquet. The result is a drink that it is soooooooooo sippable that it's hard to stop. Due to popular demand, we often serve this at our Southern supper club.


  • 3/4 cup/180 ml gin
  • 1/4 cup/60 ml premium sake
  • 1/4 cup/60 ml fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups/280 g peeled, seeded, and diced cucumber, frozen
  • 1/2 cup/85 g green grapes, frozen

  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • Pinch of sea salt
