Using matcha green tea powder in drinks is fantastic. It gives the cocktail a pleasant earthy flavour and a mesmerizing green colour.
This was also a very satisfying way to try out our bottle of Ichiros whisky that we bought in Japan a few months ago. It got to shine in this whisky highball for sure and stood up proudly to all that competing tea flavour.
2 oz Japanese whisky
0,5 oz fresh lemon juice
0,5 oz simple syrup
¼ tsp matcha green tea powder
Shake all ingredients except the club soda and strain into a highball glass. Top up with Club Soda and add ice.
