  • Deserialize the response into apex wrapper class and get the value from there. – RCS May 11 '18 at 6:17

You can create a wrapper class and use it further to get value of whatever field value required like follow:

public class sampleWrapperClass {

public String kind;
public String id;
public String alternateLink;
public String embedLink;

public static sampleWrapperClass  parse(String json) {
    return (sampleWrapperClass) System.JSON.deserialize(json, sampleWrapperClass.class);

Now that you have your wrapper structure ready, you can do following to get value of field alternatelink , execute following in execute anonymous window of developer console

sampleWrapperClass  objWrapper = sampleWrapperClass.parse(passYourJson);

This will give you,
