Introduction: Strawberry Sake Cocktail

Try this light, sparkling cocktail that combines fresh strawberries, sake, and sparkling water for a bright, fresh taste.  Fresh mint brightens the flavor, while lime and simple syrup add tart and sweet notes that make this one drink you'll be sure to go back for!


Ingredients:
  • 3 strawberries
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • Fresh mint
  • 2 ounces sake
  • 1 1/2 ounce sparkling or seltzer water

Directions:
  • Chop  2 of the strawberries into small pieces
  • In a glass, muddle strawberries, lime juice, and simple syrup until the strawberry is completely mashed up.
  • Add mint leaves and tap 5 or 6 times with muddler to release the flavor (over-muddling will make it taste bitter)
  • Fill the glass with ice and add sake.
  • Stir well.
  • Top with seltzer and garnish with mint and strawberry.
