We’re loving these matcha Mojitos so matcha! Matcha is a green tea made from stone-ground tea leaves. It’s packed with nutrients and antioxidants, so why not add it to a yummy cocktail? We made a classic mojito recipe, we like them with a lot of mint leaves (you can’t go overboard!), lime juice, a little cane sugar, and a tablespoon of matcha powder.

You can buy this at most grocery stores or find it here. So if you’re in the mood for a healthy cocktail that also has a healthy twist, try this easy Mojito recipe with lovely matcha! Cheers!!

What Does Matcha Taste Like?

The star of the show here is the matcha, it has a unique flavor. The taste is complex, rich, aromatic, astringent, and leaves an alluring sweetness post-drinking. When made in the traditional manner (ceremonial matcha), it has a full-bodied flavor.

Due to the high chlorophyll and amino acid content, matcha has a unique vegetal taste and a lingering sweet aftertaste. It works so well, in this easy mojito recipe!

Matcha Mojito – An Easy Cocktail Recipe

This is a great cocktail recipe to have on hand for an easy tipple. Only a handful of ingredients are needed! Just mix and muddle the lime, mint, sugar, and matcha, then add soda and rum – serve with ice!

This easy mojito recipe with matcha looks great and tastes really unique, bound to impress your guests and their taste buds!

Tips For This Easy Mojito Recipe

  • Use a thick or highball glass.
  • Always slap the mint leaves before putting them into the glass. Slapping the mint allows the essence of the herb to filter through the drink.
  • Never tear the leaves, as this allows the bitter aspects of the stem to filter through the easy mojito recipe.
  • Use the half lime as a shield over the mint. Muddle by applying pressure to the lime four times, making sure to keep the lime over the mint as protection.
