Margaritas are my thing. I absolutely love creating fun flavor combinations but I have to admit that I know absolutely nothing about any liquor other than tequila. Every time I order a cocktail out I literally have to google some of the ingredients to find out what they are. Different types of bitters, floats(?) – (I still don’t get this one), and all sorts of flavored things.
For now I’m sticking with tequila at home but I’d LOVE to have a well stocked home bar one day. Any tips? I’m covered on the tequila, wine, and brandy front but other than that I’m clueless!
I’m perfectly OK with that for know though because this Spicy Matcha Margarita is my jam. It’s spicy from the jalapeños, earthy from the matcha, and sweet from the honey simple syrup. It’s sort of like a spiked spicy iced green tea. I’m not complaining.
I wanted to do a green drink for St. Patrick’s Day since green beer is out of the question for me. Not only because of the whole gluten thing but because I’m really not keen on drinking artificial food coloring. My college days are long gone.
So do your body and yourself a favor this week and skip the green beer and have one of these matcha margaritas instead! And instead of artificial food coloring you’ll get a nice dose of antioxidants! I promise they’re a thousand times tastier, prettier, and healthier!

Oh wow – I love this drink! What a great idea for the Matcha powder – so pretty and I’m sure adds a fabulous element. Love the spicy, too! Nice!
What a colorful recipe. I am a huge fan of all drinks that are made with Matcha. This is going in my recipe book

Wait, what?! I never thought about matcha in alcoholic beverages but I need to get on this! I may be missing something, but do you actually add matcha powder to the drink or is that in the green tea?
Shoot! I swear, I CAN NOT proof my own posts. Thanks so much for pointing out that I left the matcha out of the recipe. It’s fixed 😉
