Green Tea "Mojito"

2 tsp. powdered matcha green tea
3 oz. hot water
6 mint leaves
5 tsp. lime juice
2 tsp. simple syrup
2 lime wedges
Soda water
Ice cubes
Tools: heat source, mixing glass, muddler or long-handled spoon
Glass: collins
Garnish: mint sprig

Cover powdered matcha green tea with hot water (not boiling, about 150 degrees) and stir well. Pour into an ice-filled tall glass. In a separate mixing glass, muddle the mint and lime juice with simple syrup, then pour contents into the tall glass. Squeeze the lime wedges into the drink and top with soda water and additional ice if needed. Stir gently and finish with mint sprig garnish.

Tip: For a spiked matcha mojito, add 1 1/2 oz. light rum, or replace the soda
water with sparkling wine.
