Ra Sushi's Tropical Island-Inspired Cocktails

 Pineapple Express and Bikini Martini

Apart from maybe a gin and tonic, or at THE MOST a margarita, I never make cocktails at home.  I don't  have the ingredients on-hand (as much as I would LOVE to have a bottle of St. Germaine, just because) and in all honesty, I just can't be bothered.  So when I go out to a restaurant and find that they have a fun cocktail menu, I get excited!  I love trying things that I know I will never make for myself at home. 

The newest tropical island-inspired drinks from Ra Sushi are definitely my kind of cocktails (especially the Pineapple Express!).  For $8 each, these cocktails will be available from March 1st-April 30th, or you can make them at home following these recipes!

1.25 oz. Kai Young Coconut Shochu
.25 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
3 oz. pineapple juice
.25 oz. lemon juice (2 lemons)

Preparation: Muddle pineapple with St. Germain in mixing tin. Add everything except soda, shake and strain into ice filled glass, top with Prosecco soda, garnish with a slice of pineapple and lime.
