We're kicking up the tea cocktail game with a Matcha Mule! Moscow Mules have been around since the 1940s and are staple in the summer time cocktails for how nice cool and refreshing they are in that icy copper mug.

Today we will be taking a spin on the classic sweet, tart, minty taste of a Moscow Mule by adding the robust grassy taste of Matcha creating what we call a Matcha Mule.

This Matcha Mule is amping up the flavor and the buzz of this classic iced drink making it the perfect addition to your Sunday brunch, or a nice pick me up for an evening out.  While you can absolutely make this Matcha Mule in any glass, there's something about holding an ice cold copper mug that chills even the hottest of summer days.
