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.
- Seedless cucumber, 1-inch piece, roughly chopped
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 4 Ounces matcha lemonade
- Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- Cucumber slices, to garnish
Step 1: In a cocktail shaker muddle a 1-inch piece of seedless cucumber with 1 1/2 ounces vodka. Let the muddled mix sit for a few minutes to allow the cucumber flavor infuse the vodka.
Step 2: Add ice and 4 ounces matcha lemonade to the shaker. Shake until chilled.
Step 3: Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Top with a squeeze of lemon juice and garnish with cucumber slices.
