How To Make A Crowd-Pleasing Cocktail With Matcha And Coconut

Matcha green tea powder pairs perfectly with coconut vodka and heavy cream

The Matriarch is a cocktail crafted by Kaitlyn Stewart, World Class's best bartender in the world of 2017. It got her past the first round of competition, and it's completely original. In honour of the strong women in her family, spearheaded by her grandmother, Stewart used coconut flavours and matcha green tea powder to make a creamy cocktail that tastes like "delicious, melted-down green tea ice cream," she says. Matcha, if you haven't heard, is very good for you. Here's her recipe.
