Easy

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
Directions

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.
