Matcha isn’t only great for your pre-workout smoothies, it can also add a kick to your cocktail hour. Bartenders across America are experimenting with matcha, taking this green powder to the party zone! And not just for its health benefits, but also because matcha’s vibrant green color and unique taste make this superfood an unlikely (but appealing) ingredient for cocktail artists.
1 tsp. Matcha
2 ½ tsp. sugar
¼ cup hot water
½ cup 100% orange juice (cold)
1 ounce vodka
- Place ice cubes in a tall glass and set aside.
- In a small bowl combine matcha and sugar then add hot water (just before boiling point) and mix until sugar is dissolved.
- Add the matcha/sugar mixture and vodka to a cocktail shaker full of ice.
- Shake and pour into a highball glass.
- Top with orange juice.
Makes 1 cocktail.
