Aloe Saketini

Aloe Saketini is a dreamy cocktail; juicy, floral and light, with a touch of sweetness and a delicate, crisp, clean finish. Over many years of cheffing and entertaining, I have imbibed and served a great number of cocktails, and the Aloe Saketini, an elegant nod to the classic martini; is high on my list of favorites! I recommend serving this cocktail to family and friends whenever the occasion calls for an air of boozy sophistication.

Whether enjoying a drink solo or hosting an evening with friends, creating cocktails glass by glass can become tedious. Sometimes, you just want to pour a cocktail, relax and enjoy the moment instead of playing bartender. To solve for this, I’m sharing my recipe for Aloe Saketini in batch format. After some quick prep work, you’ll have an abundance of delicious cocktails that practically pour themselves. No stirring or shaking required, removing the tedium and leaving you only to indulge in a smooth drinking experience.

  • Author: Asha


Makes 4 7oz cocktails


  • 16oz sake (preferably Junmai Daiginjo style) (I like the brand SOTO, but there are many other greats)

  • 8oz lightly sweetened aloe juice (I prefer the brand ALO, original aloe vera + honey)

  • 2oz dry vermouth

  • 2oz vodka

  • pinch of sea salt (optional)

  • dash of fresh lemon juice (optional)

  • cocktail picks for garnish

  • fruit for garnish (kiwi berries, regular kiwi fruit, dragon fruit or honeydew melon)



  1. Several hours or up to a day before serving, combine all ingredients (except picks and fruit) in a large pitcher, gently stir to combine, cover and chill in the refrigerator until serving.

  2. Several hours or up to a days before serving, assemble the cocktail picks and fruit for garnish. Start by dicing fruit into medium sized chunks and/or use a melon baller to make medium sized balls of fruit. Skewer three pieces of fruit per cocktail pick and freeze in a single layer. Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container until use.

  3. At least an hour before serving, set martini glasses in the freezer to chill.

  4. To serve, pour equal amounts of the Aloe Saketini into four frozen martini glasses, leaving enough room for the garnish. Garnish each cocktail with a fruited cocktail pick and enjoy!


It is essential that you serve this cocktail well chilled. If allowed to warm, the flavors will become unbalanced.

If you prefer a little showmanship when serving this cocktail, add the premade Aloe Saketini to a cocktail shaker or mixing glass filled with ice. Using a long bar spoon, stir rapidly then strain the cocktail into the chilled martini glasses.

If you want to simplify this recipe even further, omit the fruited cocktail picks and instead garnish with a lemon twist and/or a bright edible flower or sprinkling of petite flower petals.

Premade Aloe Saketini will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to five days but will start to lose some of its brightness and nuance after two days.
