2.5 shots out of 5
It's Sunday! There goes another crazy long weekend! Yesterday was all sports, then dinner with the folks. Today I did a photo shoot for family friends and then was able to relax and hang out with them. All in all it was a good, long weekend.
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. I got this recipe from SAMU's brochure they sent me along with the case of their Thai Coconut Water. My husband says that this is a pretty good cocktail. He likes coconut water a lot more then I do. I think that this cocktail would be a lot better if the ratios were a little different. If there was more sake and less coconut water in this cocktail, maybe a 2:1 ratio of sake vs. coconut water, then I think I'd like it a lot more. The idea of using coconut water in cocktails interests me as I've never even considered it until SAMU contacted me. I do look forward to trying more cocktails using it......as long as my husband doesn't sneak it all first.
Here is the recipe for a Drunken SAMU-Rai:
- 1 oz sake
- 3 oz SAMU Thai Coconut Water
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake it up well and strain it into a martini glass.

Here's to my first cocktail using coconut water. More to come!
