If you’ve been to a farmers’ market, pop-up or local event in Columbus recently, chances are you’ve seen Chloe Emmons, the founder of Potion Matcha, whipping up her delicious fruit-infused matcha lattes for the masses.

If you haven’t, then you’ve come to the right place.

Chloe visited my studio the other day with a giant IKEA bag in tow and made the prettiest and tastiest Matcha Colada. I’m so excited to share her recipe with you, because trust me — it’s that good. And it’s incredibly easy to make at home. Turn it into a refreshing cocktail by adding rum, or leave the alcohol out altogether and sip on it at any time of day. Summer just got a little sweeter.

Instructions

  1. Start by making your matcha. Add a scoop of matcha powder to a bowl with water and whisk until powder is fully disolved. Set aside.

  2. Now it’s time to build your drink. Add pineapple juice, rum (if desired) and coconut milk to a tall highball glass. Top with matcha tea and garnish with Maraschino cherries.

  3. Stir all of the flavors together and enjoy!
