A trip to Japan inspired Denver bartender Jason Patz to combine matcha (a vivid green-tea powder) with Japanese whisky. Matcha tends to clump when mixed with liquid; to loosen any that’s stuck to the side of the shaker, swirl the club soda in the shaker before pouring it into the glass.
Recipe from Food & Wine Cocktails 2015
2 ounces 12-year Japanese whisky, preferably Hibiki
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce Honey Syrup
1/4 teaspoon matcha green-tea powder
4 ounces chilled club soda
1 lemon wheel, for garnish
How to Make It
In a cocktail shaker, combine the whisky, lemon juice, Honey Syrup and matcha; shake vigorously. Pour into a chilled, ice-filled collins glass. Pour the club soda into the shaker, swirl around to rinse, then stir into the glass. Garnish with the lemon wheel.
