No matter what the weather looks like wherever you are, this cheerful tropical green tea Matcha Margarita will be sure to bring a little sunshine (along with antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats) into your day. Cheers!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 oz good quality silver tequila
3/4 oz lime juice
1/4 oz fresh orange juice
3/4 oz agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon Matcha 

For the Rim: 
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon matcha

Instructions: 

  1. Wet the entire rim of your glass with lime juice by cutting a 1/4" slit into a quarter of a lime and running it around the lip of the glass until the entire surface is evenly damp.
  2. Place the granulated sugar in a shallow bowl and the tablespoon of matcha in a separate small dipping bowl. Run the rim of the glass through the sugar, followed by the matcha. Set glass aside.
  3. Combine all margarita ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds, until the shaker feels cold in your hands. Pour margarita and ice directly into prepared glass, and garnish with lime if desired. Enjoy!
