If you’re looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage, then this “mocktail” is a nice change to your usual choice of morning beverages.
A matcha orange cocktail is subtly sweet, earthy, tart, and bursting with orange flavor. The citrus awakens your senses and introduces you to the morning with a clear mind, while the power of matcha green tea invigorates your body with antioxidants, fluorine, and vitamins. The result is natural matcha energy that helps you conquer the day ahead of you.
Though it’s lovely for a personal morning ritual this Epic Sunrise mocktail is enjoyed best with good company. Invite a few friends over and enjoy a beautifully sweet drink that fuels you both with awesome matcha energy.
It’s a wonderful alternative to typical breakfast food that can be dressed to impress. Chances are your friends won’t even know they’re drinking matcha. Even using a clear glass is a great way to show off this lovely mocktails vivid color.
