Sakura Martini from Bar Goto


Topped with a delicate cherry blossom, the Sakura Martini combines maraschino cherry liqueur, gin, and hints of sake for a flavorful punch that’s best enjoyed alongside an array of Japanese barside bites. Potent, yet completely transparent, Bar Goto’s unique take on the classic martini seems to follow fashion’s number one rule: less is always more.
