sencha-licious!An homage to Japanese cuisine, my newest delectable tea cocktail combines a great Japanese green tea with other traditionally Japanese ingredients.

When one becomes a master of Sake, he or she is given the title “Sake Samurai” – the inspiration behind the name of this masterful drink:


2 oz ginjo Sake
1/4 teaspoon freshly-grated ginger
1 1/2 oz sencha, chilled
1 tbsp simple syrup
1 Mitsuba leaf (or substitute Cilantro)

Mix sake with ginger, allow to infuse for about 20-30 minutes. A Shake with ice, simple syrup and green tea.

Strain and serve in a martini glass with a floating Mitsuba leaf.
