Can you even with this little kimono girl? So sweet!
The first time I heard the word matcha I was under my midwest rock, in the glory days of Pinterest, looking for a copy-cat wine-slush recipe (of all things) for a product I’d bought at a tradeshow.. that magically turns bottles of best-enjoyed-in-winter wines into glorious summer slush.
I found what looked to be a great recipe, except that it called for adding this fine green powder called matcha. I remember asking Lydia (she’s like the crystal ball of everything) about matcha, and two days later I received a package in the mail. I promise that was good because not a single store in my little town carried matcha… Don’t you love saying that word?
At any rate, that was probably about 4 or 5 years ago, and I’ve been making this tasty summer slush ever since – always with dry reds, and it’s is beautiful when it’s served. A few tips: I use about half of the suggested sugar, and I grind it in my food processor so that it is very fine. Also, I’ve had a few of the freezer bags leak, so I put it in a flat tupperware container now. You will LOVE IT SO MATCHA!
Adorable This Matcha is from a set that I received as a gift from Ellen Hutson – designed by the amazing Julie Ebersole. Thank you! My little gal was colored with Copics several weeks ago and popped up on a scalloped panel from Mama Elephant!
Thank you so matcha for stopping by!
