Though sushi and sake are the stars at Masa, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant also serves a number of specialty cocktails that change seasonally. The cocktails are priced at about $20 to $28 a drink and feature Asian ingredients and housemade liquors that spruce up ordinary combinations. A recent summer cocktail list included champagne-, vodka-, gin-, rum- and tequila-based drinks.
If you’re in the mood for something fruity, you should try the fresh strawberry martini, a blend of housemade strawberry rum, St. Germain and fresh strawberries, or the Darling Clementine, a mix of housemade clementine vodka, fresh clementine juice and mint. More unusual flavor combinations include the Jalapeño Ja, made with jalapeño vodka, fresh lime and muddled cucumber, or the yuzu champagne made with sweet yuzu juice, rose water and La Caravelle Champagne.
