Perfect for entertaining on weekend afternoons, matcha limeade is a clean caffeine pick-me-up. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint, or add an ounce of tequila or vodka to create a refreshing summer cocktail.
- 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
- 4 cups fresh limeade
- 1 cup sparkling water
- 6 sprigs fresh mint
In a shallow bowl, combine the matcha with about a cup of limeade. Whisk well to combine.
Add the matcha-limeade mixture to a pitcher and add the remaining limeade. Stir well. This mixture can be covered and refrigerated for several hours.
To make, fill a glass with ice. I like to use a stemless wine glass. Fill the glass half full with the limeade mixture and top off with a splash of sparkling water. Finish with a fresh mint sprig and serve.
