This cocktail is interesting, sophisticated and complex! We came across this recipe on TikTok (@moresavorygoods) who shares he discovered it at Handshake Speakeasy Bar in Mexico City and reverse engineered it. We felt like giving this a shot and found it to be extremely good! We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!

This makes 1 drink! Let's get started!
1 small block of white chocolate
For Vanilla Simple Syrup
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
1 vanilla bean or few drops of vanilla extract
1.5 oz. Vanilla Simple Syrup*
1/2 tsp. Matcha Powder
1 1/4 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 tbsp. Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 oz. Bombay Sapphire Gin
You will also need a blender, mixing glass, bar spoon, small sauce pan, cheesecloth or coffee filter, microplane grater and a rocks tumbler.
In your small sauce pan add:
1 Cup Water
1 Cup Sugar
Vanilla Bean or Vanilla Extract
Let simmer over medium/low heat until liquid is Reduced by half (~10-12 mins.)
Set aside to chill.
First we need to create the cordial.
Add Matcha, lemon juice and vanilla simple syrup to blender and blend.
Add Greek yogurt and blend again.
Strain liquid by pouring liquid into coffee filter or cheese cloth and set cordial aside. We used a funnel to stabilize. This process will be slow and take a little bit of time.
When you've created the cordial, to your mixing glass add:
Equal parts cordial and gin with an ice cube (we used 1 1/2 oz. of each)
Stir until chill.
Using a separate cube of ice, shave white chocolate on top and place in tumbler.
Strain mixture (from mixing glass) into your tumbler and gently stir.
“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous back as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed.”
