101 Best New Cocktails: Sencha Flip by Jason Walsh, CocktailLogic.com, Brooklyn, NY
Adapted from a recipe by Jason Walsh, CocktailLogic.com, Brooklyn, NY.
“This cocktail was inspired by my adoration of Sencha Japanese tea. Many people use Matcha, however Sencha has more complexity and flavor so I prefer it over Matcha in certain cocktails.” Jason Walsh.
60 ml (2 oz) Plymouth gin
45 ml (1.5 oz) Sweetened Sencha green tea (chilled)
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice
1 large egg white
Dry-shake, then add a few ice cubes (not too many) and shake again. Strain into a chilled glass (I use a desert wine glass or pony) and enjoy.
gaz sez: Sencha or Matcha? Matcha or Sencha? It’s one of those choices that needs a damned good ponder. Jason called it well here!
