If you’re looking for a new spin on a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail, this emerald whiskey concoction is for you! The drink gets it’s green hue from Japanese matcha powder, a form of green tea that has been ground down. The powder, which I got at Shuhari Matcha Cafe, has a higher concentration of antioxidants than regular green tea, which brings some healthiness to happy hour! The slight bitterness of the matcha with the sweet honey and lemon compliments the whiskey, making this the ultimate St. Patty’s beverage. Enjoy!
