Tea Recipe: The Matcha Citron

As 2018 gets rolling, one thing is becoming near certain: the Matcha craze is nowhere near over!

So I figured now would be a good time to stoke the flames with a new tea cocktail recipe, featuring, of course, Matcha!

I call this one The Matcha Citron.

Enjoy:

The Matcha Citron

1.5 oz Dry Gin
0.5 oz Matcha vermouth (recipe follows)
0.25 oz Lillet Blanc
1 drop Orange Bitters
Lemon wedge for garnish

Add all ingredients (except garnish) to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass (or a smaller Martini glass). Garnish with a lemon wedge, rubbing it around the rim of the glass.

MATCHA VERMOUTH

Sift ¼ teaspoon Matcha into a shallow bowl and add ½ cup dry vermouth. Using a bamboo matcha whisk, blend the powder and vermouth until it’s combined. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Cheers!
