This Reverse Martini-style cocktail originally featured a floating salted cherry blossom as a garnish. This is not just for looks, the hint of saltiness it lends this delicate drink replaces the savoury note which an olive typically brings to a Martini.
Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Kenta Goto. This is the house Martini at his Bar Goto in New York City, USA.
