Summer Solstice Sake Sparkler


I saw this recipe on the Food Network website and it looked fun. Ive never tried sake, but it looks tasty presented this way!

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

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.

Yeah Ive never heard of using cucumber with mixed drinks. But then again Ive never had sake, so I wasnt sure about this take on it. Who knows, it may complement it well. Is sake as strong as they say it is?
