What's happens when you mix matcha with whiskey? A mean, green Detox|Retox dream that's what.
To celebrate St Patrick's Day this week the Mighty Matcha team have created a whiskey cocktail (of course they have) combining their green tea powder and Jameson.
If you're hosting a St Patrick's Day party this drink is great if you love a gimmick but don't like super sweet cocktails (or Guinness).
And a cup of matcha contains 137 times more antioxidants than a cup of standard green tea so you can feel (a wee bit) virtuous as you sip your kermit-coloured creation.
[tip] I don't have Matcha Syrup (does anybody have Matcha Syrup?!) so I used less lemon juice to stop the drink getting too sour. Add a dash of standard sugar syrup/gomme if you absolutely cannot live without a bit of sweetness.
