Yuzu Saketini Cocktail

I created this Yuzu Saketini cocktail in preparation for an Asian themed dinner party I hosted a few weeks ago. It was such a crowd pleaser that I knew I had to share it with you all! The quantities listed are for a big dinner party, enough for about 8-10 people. Halve quantities if serving fewer guests. Warning – these cocktails are delicious and STRONG
