On hot summer days, this drink will surely cool you down!

Shiso Martinis


Serves 8

  • 1 bottle (1 liter) best-quality vodka
  • 20 fresh shiso leaves, plus 8 more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry vermouth
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Small ice cubes


  1. Combine vodka and shiso in a large bowl. Cover, and let stand overnight at room temperature. Strain into a pitcher, and discard shiso.
  2. Add vermouth and lime juice to vodka. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add 1/2 cup vodka mixture, and shake for 45 seconds. Pour into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a shiso leaf. Repeat, and serve immediately.
