Matcha and mint: the perfect, elegant summer cocktail pairing. Simple to make, even simpler to drink. Matcha simple syrup makes enough for about 2 drinks.
Serves: 1
INGREDIENTS
  • Matcha simple syrup:
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon culinary-grade Mizuba matcha
  • Matcha mojito:
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces good white rum
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1.5 - 2 ounces matcha simple syrup, depending on how strong a matcha flavor or sweetness you like
  • club soda
  • Garnish:
  • mint leaves
  • green tea bag tags
INSTRUCTIONS
To make the matcha simple syrup:
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and whisk til totally dissolved. Remove from heat. Spoon matcha into a small bowl and pour a little simple syrup into the bowl to make a paste, whisking vigorously until totally smooth. Pour in remaining simple syrup and whisk until smooth. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate until cool and ready to use.

To make matcha mojito:
Tear mint leaves and place in the bottom of a tall glass. Muddle mint leaves with a muddler or back of a spoon. Add rum, vodka, and matcha simple syrup and stir to combine. Add a couple handfuls of ice, up to about ⅔ of the glass. Top with club soda. Garnish with mint leaves.
