  • Method: cocktail, shaken
  • Cuisine: Japanese


A smooth, swanky, and boozy martini with soft flavors of cucumber and sake.


  • 2 oz vodka (We're a Ketel One household)
  • 1 oz  sake. I was gifted this Gekkeikan Sake recently, and it is lovely.
  • 4 thick slices of cucumber for muddling. 1 thin slice for garnish


  1. In a cocktail shaker muddle 3 cucumber slices very well, so they release a lot of cucumber juice and flavor.
  2. Add the vodka, sake, and a few ice cubes, cover, and shake for 20 seconds.
  3. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with another slice of cucumber.
