Another drink by Robert E. Wilkes. This cocktail is another twist on the classic Mojito, this time substituting Japanese Shiso leaves for the mint, sweet sake (mansakuno hana) for the rum and using Sprite instead of club soda. Nihongo is the Japanese word for, well, "Japanese". I created this drink for a Teppanyaki restaurant in Tokyo and it's very refreshing flavour profile is appreciated by locals and foreigners alike.

1 squeezed lime wedge
1/2 brown sugar
3 fresh Shiso leaves
1.5 ozSweet sake rice wine
Top with Sprite® soda
1 Shiso leaf

In a chilled Collins glass add, in order, the first three ingredients. Muddle until aromatic and well mixed. Add ice, then pour the sake over the ice. Top with Sprite and garnish with a whole shiso leaf.
