IMG_1064Kenichi, the long-running Japanese restaurant in Victory Park (it’s the longest continuously-operating restaurant in the neighborhood), recently hired a hot new executive sushi chef, who will launch his new menu on Monday. I’ll have a review of it next week. But until then, I thought I’d share one of the faboo cocktails the back at Kenichi offers: The 10.

1-1/4 oz. Tanqueray Ten gin

1/2 oz. St-Germain liqueur

1/2 oz. simple syrup

Lime juice


Making it: Combine gin, liqueur, syrup and a splash of lime in a shaker, pour into a martini glass. Top with a splash of champagne. Garnish with a cucumber.
