It's National Sake Day, and no one knows how to better celebrate than New York City's Koi Bryant Park and SoHo restaurants. Not only does the restaurant specialize in sake cocktails, like the Rockin' Cucumber made with Rock sake and vodka, Koi has its own exclusive sake on tap. Brewed by the Kamikokoro Brewery in the Okayama prefuncture (an area that's known for producing Japan's top sakes), the fragrant Koi Sake's rice has been polished to 50 percent, ensuring the purest quality possible. Try the Rockin' Cucumber next time you're in, or make your own at home.

- 1 1/2 Ounce vodka

Add all in to a shaker, shake hard to breakdown the cucumbers, and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
