Why use the Elixir Mixer in a cocktail?
Using an Elixir Mixer ensures that the matcha powder is fully integrated into the cocktail, leading to a smoother taste and a more pleasing appearance.
Can I use a different kind of tea if I don't have matcha?
While matcha gives this cocktail its unique color and flavor, you could try other finely ground teas. The result will be different but still delicious.
Can I make this cocktail alcohol-free?
Certainly! You can replace the vodka with more simple syrup or a non-alcoholic vodka alternative. The vermouth can be replaced with non-alcoholic white grape juice with a splash of lemon juice.
