Its slowlygetting hotter outside and the sun is shining brighter, which means its time for summertime parties.
Do you know what would be the perfect drink to serve at your summerybash? Matcha Lemonade.
In fact, ever since Starbucks released itsnew Matcha Lemonade as part of theCups of Kindness collection, the refreshing beverage has become pretty damn popular so Im sure your guests would the refreshing surprise.
So far, weve given Matcha Lemonade a try and made the conclusion that it tastes like lemonade, but it isnt overly sweet.
But what isit that gives Matcha Lemonade its semi-sweet flavor?
Well, the answer is simple: matcha tea and lemonade.
Seriously thats it.
Based off the simple ingredient list used to make this drink, itll be super easy to concoct for your guests at your next summer bash.
Starbucks website lists the exact ingredients used to create Matcha Lemonade in stores. Based off the drinks description, baristas use a combination of Teavana matcha green tea and crisp lemonade. Then, they shake it all up and serve it.
Its a pretty one, isnt it?
In order to make this gorgeous drink at home, all youll need is matcha powder, lemonade, and ice.
First, youll need to make your matcha tea and let it cool down. If youve never made matcha tea before, dont fret its super simple.
All you need to do is mix the matcha powder into hot water until your tea is frothy and the powder has dissolved. Then, just set it your fridge to let it chill.
I know matcha powder isnt exactly an everyday grocery, so you might not have it yet.
You can usually buy matcha green tea powder at your nearest health food store, or you can buy a hefty bag of it here on Amazon.
(I can assure you that youll be hooked once you start drinking it.)
Once you have your cold matcha tea, add a lemonade of your choice (you can make your own lemonade, too, but that sounds like a process you might not want to deal with for a quick pick-me-up).
If youre feeling adventurous, you can totally adda flavored lemonade to the mix, too. Strawberry Matcha Lemonade sounds delicious, if you ask me.
Then, mix it all up and add some ice! Youll have your own Matcha Lemonade in no time.
If I went to an outdoor party and the host was serving homemade Matcha Lemonade, Id be the happiest partygoer in the world.
But, youll have to make sure the DJ is playing Lady Gaga while youre sipping on it, because she this drink.
