Who knew matcha and watermelon would go so well together? MatchaBar in Brooklyn apparently. I ordered this drink on a visit and enjoyed it so much (and I recently have been on a blending binge with a newly acquired Vitamix) I wanted to try making it on my own.
A combination of freshly squeezed lemons, mint leaves, and of course, tea makes for a very refreshing summer drink. To brighten up the flavors of a basic Arnold Palmer (half lemonade, half iced tea), I muddled fresh mint leaves (basil is another great option) using a muddler.
