As you know, I have a longstanding obsession with shiso leaves, and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to create a cocktail with the delicate flavors of Matcha and shiso - a Matcha Julep! With a generous pour of coconut water, a splash of Everclear, and a dash of Honey Water to sweeten the cocktail, this cocktail everything I hoped it would be: delicate, smooth, and loaded with the fresh green flavors of green tea and shiso - with a tiki twist.

I hope you enjoy this cocktail as much as I do!
