Frozen Matcha Margaritas
The complex botanical character of matcha stands up to the bold taste of tequila, which is what makes this recipe work! It yields roughly two 12-oz frozen Margs, or three 8-oz margs. Try it yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments.
For the rims:
1 TBS kosher salt
For the drink:
1.5 cups (12 oz) ice cubes
4 oz Moscato wine
2.5 oz Cointreau or triple sec
2.5 oz Tequila (blanco or reposado)
1 oz Grand Marnier
2 TBS lime juice
1 TBS lemon juice
0.75 - 1 tsp matcha (to taste)
- Pour the coarse salt into a small dish. Rim mason jars or Margarita glasses with lime wedge then dip in the salt.
- Combine Cointreau or triple sec, tequila, Grand Marnier and matcha in a glass. Stir vigorously with a fork or small whisk to blend the matcha in completely.
- Combine ice, moscato wine, alcohols/matcha mix, lime and lemon juice into a blender. Blend it smooth.
- Divide mixture between 2 or 3 glasses. Garnish with lime wedges. Enjoy!
