Matcha Ginger Kombucha Fizz.
Now this is the kind of green consumption that I can get behind.
This surely can be on the superfood list with kale and broccoli and all that jazz.
I’m reeeeeally into matcha at the moment! While I’m not longer boycotting coffee (that lasted, like, two weeks), matcha makes me feel energized without the crash and the flavor is mostly growing on me. I highly doubt I’ll be able to consume it anytime soon without some sort of sweetness, but who knows.
We could get there!
In the meantime, I’ll shake it with some honey, vodka and ginger kombucha (the best best best!) and drink it like a freak. Isn’t it the prettiest color ever? Please please please drink this next weekend on Saint Patrick’s Day in lieu of green beer or green vodka.
I’ve been there. It does not end well.
I thought there were a few spirits that I could combine matcha with and vodka stood out the most. Even though I’m generally not the hugest fan of vodka (however, my quick drink of choice when I don’t want to be hungover would be vodka soda with tons of limes), I find it to be the easiest to combine with, well… weird flavors. You know? Like it’s basic enough that it can let other ingredients shine.
PLUS! I’ve had it a bunch with ginger kombucha so I already know that combo is the business.
Hold up. Does this drink remind anyone else of the old school Ecto Cooler juice boxes from the 90s? Please say yes.
I am seriously loving the flavors in this drink. It tastes super FRESH to me (who else things of Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids? Annnd you don’t even want to know how often I quote “haallllp me I’m poor” on the regular) and like spring is right around the corner, which is it.
And let’s be real, that might be because matcha sort of tastes like grass. But if I’m enjoying it, you will probably enjoy it. Mix it with some honey and you’re good to go. That fresh bite also comes from the ginger kombucha (a little spice) and the fresh mint which semi-infuses the drink after it sits in it for a minute. I’m in LUST.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon matcha powder
- 8 ounces ginger kombucha
- 1 lime cut into wedges
- a handful of fresh mint for garnish
- Add the vodka, honey and matcha powder to a cocktail shaker. Shake for at least 30 seconds – until the matcha is dissolved. I like to add ice then and shake for 20 seconds more.
- Fill two chilled glasses with ice and pour the matcha vodka over. Squeeze in the juice from a lime wedge. Fill the rest of the cup with ginger kombucha and garnish with a few fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately!
Definitely a health booster.
