Matcha Gin Refresher

Matcha Gin Refresher

Makes: 2 cocktails


For the Spruce Tip Syrup

  • 1 cups water
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cups fir or spruce tips, chopped

For the Cocktail

  • 1/2 oz. spruce tip syrup
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 tsp. matcha
  • Ice



  • Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a lidded pot, stirring to make sure all the sugar is absorbed.
  • When it hits a boil, turn off the heat. Stir in the spruce tips, cover the pot, and leave to cool. The longer you steep the syrup, the stronger spruce flavor you’ll get.
  • Strain the syrup through sieve and bottle.


  • In a cocktail shaker, add the ingredients and shake until well chilled and the matcha is dissolved. Strain into 2 ice-filled rocks glasses, then serve.
