Matcha Mojito

Matcha Mojito

I love a good mojito. They're sweet (but not too sweet), citrusy, herbaceous, refreshing, and best of all, easy to make!

Since trying some new recipes with our liquid energy matcha blend, I decided to make the sugar syrup with matcha... I gotta tell you, it’s SO GOOD.

This energising cocktail is definitely on the menu this weekend. I cannot wait to enjoy it in this glorious heatwave and hope you do too.

Cheers! 🌞🌿

Ingredients

Matcha syrup

  • 2 tsp liquid energy
  • Approximately 4 tbsp warm water (not boiling - as it will reduce the health benefits of the matcha)
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup 

Any matcha syrup that is leftover, can be stored in the fridge for up to a week and added to: lattes, oats or used to make more mojitos! 

Mojito

  • 25-50ml white or gold rum (white is traditionally used, but gold is fine too)
  • 150ml soda water
  • 1-2 tbsp matcha syrup (depending on how sweet you’d like it!)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lime juice 
  • 5-10 mint leaves (depending on the size of the leaves and how minty you like your mojito - I ramp up the mint)
  • 3 thick slices of lime (the peel will impart some bitterness when muddled; this is important!)
  • Lots of ice cubes or crushed ice

    Method

    Matcha syrup 

    1. First you will need to prepare the matcha to reduce the graininess of the powder (happens with all types!)

    Whisk

    If using a whisk, spoon the liquid energy into a bowl. Now add the warm water and continuously whisk until a smooth paste is formed. 

    Sieve

    If you haven't got a whisk to hand then not to worry! Simply sift the matcha into the bowl and then add water and mix with a spoon until a smooth paste is formed.

    2. Now add in the maple syrup or honey until it dissolves. Set aside.

    Mojito

    1. Now on to the mojito part! Using a muddler or a rolling pin, muddle mint leaves and lime slices in your serving glass.
    2. Add ice to your glass, pour in matcha syrup, and an equally good glug of rum before topping with soda water.
    3. Use a tall spoon or straw to mix ingredients together.
    4. Then decorate with mint leaves and lime.

    Serves: 1
