The Rise of the Matcha Martini

It’s rich in antioxidants, boosts metabolism, and provides a gentle, steady source of energy. When paired with the indulgent flavor of white chocolate and the clean, crisp bite of vodka, matcha transforms into an exquisite cocktail that’s both invigorating and indulgent.

  • Vodka: 2 ounces
  • Almond Milk: 1 ounce (can substitute with regular milk)
