We’re excited to be joining Donna and Chad over at The Slow Roasted Italian for a weekly Ladies Night Cocktail party. If you haven’t checked out their blog, you’re missing out. Each week, we’ll be linking up new appetizers and cocktails and are inviting you to join in on the fun. (The recipe with the most links will be featured over at The Slow Roasted Italian and they’ll also feature their weekly favorite.)
Check out the rules below and please add your favorites. This week we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, but bring whatever you LOVE.
Anyhow, we’ll kick off the party with a Saketini. This is a really simple twist on the classic martini, and a great way to use up some leftover sake.
For those folks out there who do not like gin, then soak some cucumber slices in the vodka before mixing it. This will give it an herbal/floral flavor to mimic the gin. Or something like that.
- 3 oz gin
- 1 oz sake
- squeeze of lemon juice
Pour all ingredients in a large cup filled with ice. Stir a few times, strain into a martini glass and serve with a cocktail onion or two.
