Recently matcha green tea cocktails have appeared on the menus of the best drink bars around the world. Matcha tonic is one of the cocktails that taste great both in non-alcoholic (‘virgin’) and alcoholic versions (with gin). Thanks to the addition of the Japanese tea with a characteristic, sublime flavour, classic cocktails enriched with umami acquire completely new aromas. An additional advantage, which we just can’t forget to mention, is the fact that when added to a cocktail, matcha retains its energetic properties. Matcha tonic is therefore not only refreshing, but also energising. The green version is perfect for sunny days and warm nights.
