The Greenhouse (Sake Based Cocktail)

As someone whose go-to drink is Sake, it’s shocking we have waited this long to share a sake based cocktail here on the blog.

The best part about sake is that it is so smooth and refreshing so to compliment it’s best qualities, we created a cucumber mint agua fresca to top it off! For this recipe we used Hakutsuru Superior Junmai Ginjo however it can be made using, filtered, unfiltered, or even sparkling sake!

So gather your friends, head outside, and celebrate the summer with this perfect garden cocktail.

And while we are on the subject - no cocktail party would be complete without the perfect glassware. TOSSWARE is our absolute favorite. They have created recyclable drinkware that is 100% shatterproof, 100% recyclable and completely BPA-free! CLICK HERE to get your own set of glasses from Tossware now.
