Galentine's Day

PSA: If you’re the Leslie Knope of your group…and going all out on the Galentine’s Day plans -- THIS IS THE BLOG FOR YOU.

 

Whether it's a wild celebration or a mild celebration, as long as you’re with friends, Galentine's Day is a reason to toast to the awesomeness of YOU and gal pals everywhere. 

When Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation declared February 13th the official day to cherish female friendship and empowerment, ladies everywhere rejoiced and we've been celebrating every year since. 

What’s your plan for this year's Galentine’s day?! Getting a group together to sit in your comfiest sweats and watch the Bachelor Olympics (we know you are…)? Gifting your besties with their favorite goodies? Hitting up your go-to karaoke bar and singing your favorite girl power anthem?

Whatever it is, we got you covered on the cocktails. Grab your best gal pals and celebrate your sisterhood love with some yummy (healthy) spiked matcha drinks! (Feel free to leave out the alcohol if you’re going for a more low-key vibe!!)

Matcha Mimosas

A staple at formal gatherings of gals, nothing says cheers to you honey like a raised hand holding a bright and bubbly mimosa.  

Tenzo’s take on the classic combines strawberries, mint, agave and a touch of lime with our delicious organic matcha and chilled champagne. It's energizing, crisp, and takes about two minutes to make so you can focus on feeling the love.

For two glasses:

Directions

  1. Use a bamboo whisk or Tenzo Shaker Bottle to whisk together Tenzo Premium Matcha and water in a small bowl until frothy. Set aside to cool.

  2. Muddle mint, lime juice and agave in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and matcha concentrate and shake to chill matcha.

  3. Wash, dry and cut off the stems off of a few strawberries. Slice in half and place 2-3 slices into two champagne glasses.

  4.  Fill the glasses halfway with champagne, then strain the chilled matcha into the two glasses and top more chilled champagne. Enjoy!
