I am very pleased to welcome our newest contributor, Andrew Yenne. Our new chum will be posting here occasionally about a variety of topics, but most notably our Cocktail of the Month posts. He is one mean mixologist. I believe this post will prove my point. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, but this cocktail tastes much less like matcha and much more like AMAZING!!

Matcha Green Tea Gimlet
Ahhh March. That wonderful month of the year that bridges the cold sullen grey of February with the bright vibrancy of April. In March it seems everything is turning green, from the medians on the highway to the St Paddy's Day revelers.
What better way to celebrate this unique month than with a uniquely green Cocktail of the Month? The Matcha Green Tea Gimlet.
I know what you are thinking..."A matcha cocktail? But matcha tastes like grass." and yes, I know that other thought you are thinking..."Gin?! But that tastes like pine needles." Fret not Nesters, the grassy notes of the matcha balance perfectly with the flowery botanicals of the London dry gin. By the way, like all things in life you get out what you put in, so only use a good London dry gin. I prefer Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire for this drink.
