Yup! I made a cocktail with matcha.  I mean, come on – you can get your cocktail on while reaping the tremendous benefits of matcha.

I believe in life of moderation so a little cocktail spritzer on a sunny, warm afternoon is sometimes in order. But, if you don’t indulge, feel free to just omit the vodka and benefit from the remaining ingredients.

If you can get your hands on fresh, ripe pineapple then do it.  Alternatively, frozen pineapple works but make sure you thaw it a little before you start mixing it up!
