It may be the middle of March and summer is months away, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate with a bright, lemony cocktail. Vodka provides a festive punch and muddled cucumber and matcha lend a lucky green vibe. 

This recipe is by Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company and was originally published in the Orlando Sentinel.
