MIXOLOGISTS HAVE UNCOVERED THE SECRET INGREDIENT FOR CREATING HEALTHY COCKTAILS – MATCHA


Generally, matcha is used in cocktails in its powder form due to its strong, bold, earthy, and bitter flavors. “As a powder, it is so easily malleable that it works well as infusions with alcohol, or in syrups for sweeteners,” says Lu. You can still feel healthy while you get drunk, because it also contains caffeine and is well-known for its health benefits. “Who wouldn’t want a cocktail that makes you feel great, and is (kind of) good for you?”

Bartenders enjoy working with it because it’s incredibly flexible, so it works well within the sweet and savory range of flavors. “I find it works best with citrus flavors (lime, lemon, or its japanese counterpar yuzu) or egg whites,” says Lu. “The flavor is earthy and slightly bitter, and it has a really cool color,” says Khaund.
