  3. Garnish with a lemon peel after expressing the oil over drink and rubbing around the rim of the glass.
  4. **To make the Matcha green tea infused dry vermouth:
  5. Pour ¼ teaspoon sifted Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder into a shallow bowl or mason jar and add ½ cup dry vermouth. Using a bamboo matcha whisk (or a regular whisk if you don't have the matcha one), blend the powder and vermouth until it's combined. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  6. This recipe is easy to batch for a crowd if needed. Simply multiply the ingredients by the number of guests you’re serving. Stir in a large pitcher until chilled and serve.
