Watermelon Water + Matcha Cold-Brew

Watermelon Water + Matcha Cold-Brew

And to finish out this matcha cold-brew journey we've been on, I bring you my personal favorite: the watermelon matcha! Possibly the most refreshing and tasty beverage I have ever come across.

Below I've included two recipes, a "quick" version and a "fancy" version - which you make depends on who you're serving to and how much time you have. For my daily fix, I definitely opt for the "quick" version :)

Ingredients:

Preparation (quick version):
You won't get the layered effect like in the picture, but it still tastes great!

  1. Add ingredients to a shaker bottle (add the watermelon water first, then the matcha to avoid any sticking to the bottom) and shake vigorously until well mixed.
  2. Pour over ice and enjoy!

Preparation (fancy version):
Wow your friends with beautiful layers...it's actually not that hard to do.

  1. In a separate cup, mix up the matcha with about 1/2 cup of cold water, either by shaking or using a whisk.
  2. In your serving glass, add ice and the watermelon water.
  3. Slowly pour the matcha tea over top of the watermelon water (it helps to pour it over the back of a spoon)...and voila, beautiful layers!
  4. Garnish with a wedge of watermelon if desired.

If you're feeling *really* fancy, you can make your own watermelon water.
