Hop Toad Rickey

Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz. Hendricks Gin
  • Juice of 1 ½ key limes and their shells
  • 3-4 oz. Matcha tea/Peach siphoned soda (See Note)

  • Dash Verbena Essence (or a lemon verbena leaf smacked or muddled to release oils)
  • Sprig of Lemon Basil, for garnish
Directions

Fill a tall glass with cracked ice. Add gin, lime juice and shells, soda and verbena essence or leaf. Stir, and garnish with a sprig of lemon basil.

Note: For the siphoned soda, Tseng brews Matcha tea and mixes it with peach juice in a two to one ratio, then adds 8-10 drops of her housemade Verbena Essence and about a half teaspoon of Xanthum gum for texture before charging the mixture in a soda siphon. For an easier mixer, combine the Matcha tea/peach juice with carbonated water, to taste.
