Introducing: the very first cocktail recipe on What Great Grandma Ate!

It’s true that I’m not much of a drinker. Ever since suffering from candida overgrowth and having to still go through symptoms now and then, I tend to stay away from alcohol most of the time. However, I do feel left out of imbibing socially now and then, and with Christmas just around the corner, I thought it was a great time to introduce this low sugar cocktail that I love especially with the addition of matcha.

While I usually don’t indulge in alcohol, I never say no to champagne at weddings, New Year’s Eve, or any kind of celebration. They are so delicious and sparkly, especially when they are dry. So I combined my love for matcha and champagne to make you this Lemon Mint Matcha Champagne.

The result is a subtly sweet and fizzy drink with a hint of matcha to help you feel giddy, while helping you stay up until the ball drops. It’s a fun drink for anytime of the year, but I know I’ll definitely be making this for New Years, and I hope you do too!
