In the mood for a cool treat from the Far East with a twist of Texas, try a Green Manalashi. Chef Mason Evans from the Lucky Robot Japanese Kitchen on 1303 South Congress joined us to show how to make this cocktail. Here’s the recipe:


  • 16 oz cucumber infused junmai saki
  • 3 oz lemon juice
  • 3 oz lime juice
  • 3 oz agave nectar
  • Fresh Thai holy basil, mint and cilantro to taste
  • 5 slices serrano pepper, seeded, fine julienne
  • 1 oz cucumber seeds


  • For cucumber infused sake, marinate 1/2 cucumber in refrigerated saki for 24 hours. Strain cucumbers.
  • Muddle herbs, juices serrano and agave, then pour into carafe with saki and cucumber seeds. Fill with ice, serve and enjoy! provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
