  • Put milk, simple syrup, and matcha into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously 50 times.
    Put ingredients into the cocktail shaker as listed, with matcha last. To get less matcha clumps, sift matcha into the cocktail shaker using a mesh strainer.
  • Pour iced matcha latte into a cup with ice.


  • Matcha is a powered green tea that is packed with antioxidants. The brighter the green, the better the quality.
  • The best way to sweeten cold drinks is with a simple syrup, which is sugar dissolved in water. Use store-bought or homemade simple syrup.
  • Starbucks makes the drink with 2% milk but you can use any milk you like.
  • Use filtered water to make ice if possible.
  • No cocktail shaker? Use a jar with a tight lid.
  • Instead of using regular, unsweetened matcha and simple syrup, you can use sweetened matcha but the color will be a pale green and the matcha taste will be less pronounced. The sweetened matcha will dissolve completely, leaving no clumps of matcha.
  • Regular matcha will create tiny little bits of green floating in the drink but if you want less clumps, use a mesh strainer to sift the matcha powder into the cocktail shaker before shaking.
  • To customize this drink at home, use vanilla syrup, instead of plain simple syrup, and vanilla sweet cream cold foam.
