Easy Matcha Lime Fizz Recipe

Hello Guys, Austin welcomes you to Beyond The Bayou Blog. I hope everyone is having a good time thus far. I was just thinking of making something different and then I thought why not a yummy gr cocktail to help celebrate! This recipe is a Matcha lime fizz! Super tasty and yummy!

This drink came to light because a friend of mine a few years ago made me this smoothie containing matcha powder, lime juice, vanilla powder, and almond milk. Blended with ice and a little vanilla syrup and, boom! There ya go! Was super tasty and delicious and I needed to be on that Matcha kick.

So, why not turn it into a cocktail? This recipe is a take on a Ramos Gin Fizz. The Ramos was born in New Orleans and consists of gin, citrus, cream, egg white, and a splash of club soda. To me, it is the perfect combo and a great creamy drink!

For this recipe, the ingredients are matcha powder, lime syrup, lime juice, half and half, vanilla, gin, and egg white. Very quick to put together and tasty!

So if you are willing to try my recreation or just want to make something refreshing, stay tuned to us for the next few minutes.

Get ready for a refreshing and unique cocktail experience with my Matcha Gin Fizz recipe! We start by creating a homemade lime syrup infused with zesty lime flavor. After chilling it down, we combine lime juice, gin, lime syrup, matcha powder, half and half, vanilla extract, and egg white in a cocktail shaker.

The secret to a perfect frothy texture? Dry shaking vigorously for 10 seconds without ice, then add ice and shake again to chill. This creates a creamy, velvety foam that you’ll love.

To serve, add a splash of club soda in your glass, strain the cocktail over it for a foamy top, and watch it rise with a few more soda splashes. Finish with a sprinkle of matcha powder for an elegant touch.

This Matcha Gin Fizz is not just a drink; it’s a work of art that delights the senses with its vibrant flavors and frothy goodness. Cheers to sipping in style! Try more of such citrus flavor with my Lemon Drop Martini and Espresso Martini.

Let’s Try Some Variations!

  1. Citrus Twist: Instead of lime, try using lemon or orange zest and juice for a different citrusy flavor profile. This variation adds a refreshing twist to the cocktail.
  2. Herbal Infusion: Infuse the lime syrup with fresh herbs like mint or basil for added aroma and complexity. Simply add the herbs to the syrup while it steeps and strain them out before chilling.
  3. Spiced Matcha: For a hint of warmth, sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon or ginger into the matcha powder before adding it to the cocktail shaker. This adds depth to the flavor profile.
  4. Coconut Cream: Replace half and half with coconut cream for a dairy-free option. The coconut flavor pairs well with the matcha and lime, creating a tropical vibe.
  5. Tequila Twist: Swap the gin for tequila to create a Matcha Margarita variation. Adjust the sweetness accordingly to balance the flavors.
  6. Frozen Variation: Blend all the ingredients with ice for a frozen Matcha Lime Fizz. Serve in a chilled glass for a frosty treat.
  7. Garnish Ideas: Experiment with different garnishes like a lime twist, fresh mint leaves, or edible flowers to enhance the cocktail’s presentation.
