A Matcha Highball Cocktail to get your weekend started.
Earlier this week I shared a sneak peek of this Matcha Highball recipe and asked whether you wanted to see the recipe on By Gabriella. And, the response was overwhelmingly positive!
Just kidding, I received maybe five yeses. But here we are, anyways. Those five yeses mean a whole bunch to me because they come from you! So thank you for wanting to see this fun, weird, colorful cocktail recipe.
Side note: Isn’t the plural of yes – yeses – just awful? If I never have to use that again, it would be too soon.
I stirred up this cocktail for a shoot for one of my clients and I simply had to share with you because…well…look at those colors!
And also, it was an excuse to break out my favorite vintage find ever – these pink highball glasses. I mean seriously, are they perfect or what? I just wish that I had more of them. For now, I’ll have to settle with two, but if any of you find these at a flea or something of the sort – get them! Don’t hesitate.
I ended up making this Matcha Highball on St. Patrick’s Day, which was perfect. In fact, it was much different than St. Patrick’s Day cocktails I’ve had in the past – like this Lucky Charms Milkshake and this spiked coffee. I mean, it’s got matcha and almond milk. So much yum!
1 ounce whiskey
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce honey syrup
1/4 teaspoon matcha powder
3 ounces almond milk
Dried or fresh lemon wheel
1. Combine whiskey, lemon juice, matcha powder, and honey syrup and shake vigorously.
2. Pour into an ice-filled highball glass.
3. Top with milk and garnish with lemon wheel.

This cocktail does sound weird, I’ll be the first to admit it. Why? Well, because it’s got almond milk in it which isn’t the most popular cocktail ingredient. Or maybe it is and I don’t know it? Please advise.
What do you want to see here next? New flavors? More colorful cocktails? Something totally different?
This Mocktail is perfect to serve to guests for the weekend party!
