In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, check out the recipe below courtesy of Cori Hertz. This green sparkling drink is inspired by the Matcha Sparklers at Shuhari Matcha Cafe on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. They make a mint matcha drink and a version with Yuzu as well. For the rare cold day in LA – they also make amazing Matcha Lattes! Try it – You’ll love it!!
