Kenta Goto, of acclaimed Bar Goto on New York City’s Lower East Side, relied on his upbringing in Tokyo to inspire this saké and Tequila cocktail.


  • 2 shiso leaves, muddled
  • 2 ounces Junmai saké
  • ⅔ ounce St-Germain
  • ½ ounce blanco Tequila
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Yuzu bitters

Muddle shiso leaves in a mixing glass. Add remaining ingredients with ice, and stir. Double-strain into a cocktail glass.
