Ingredients

  • 1 fresh basil leaf, chopped
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 lemon twists
  • 2 orange wedges
  • 1/4 English cucumber, seeded and diced, very cold
  • 1 1/2 ounces orange flavored liqueur (recommended: Cointreau)
  • Ice cubes
  • 250 ml bottle sparkling sake

Method

Step 1

Put the basil, mint, lemon, orange, cucumber, and orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker. Add the ice, cover, and shake vigorously, or stir, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready when the shaker mists up.) Pour into a chilled Collins glass and top with the sparkling sake. Drop in a pair of chopsticks to pick out the cucumber and oranges, if desired. Drink.
