About this Cocktail

Chanoyu [Japanese Tea Ceremony]

A lush Japanese tea party, in the shade of spring leaves.

Made for the native tongue--mild, approachable, but boozy.

Ingredients:
  • 1.25 oz Hakushu 10 Year Single Malt Whisky
  • .75 oz Kannoko Mugi (Barley) Sochu
  • .25 oz iichiko Kabosu Lime liqueur
  • .25 oz Yuzu juice
  • .25 oz Matcha simple syrup
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • Top with sparkling H2O
  • Edible flowers for garnish
Preparation:

pour, shake, double strain, sip.

served in: highball glass with ice

The matcha simple syrup will need to be prepped ahead of time. 1:1 ratio of H2O and sugar, then 2 tbsp of matcha green tea powder. I've also made this cocktail with a homemade Genmaicha and Hōjicha syrup; I prefer both over Matcha. But out of respect for the traditional Chanoyu (Japanese Tea Ceremony), I stuck with the Matcha.

Lemon is no substitution for Yuzu...just sayin'
