Your Favourite Summer Cocktail Awaits! Matcha, Aloe Vera Juice, and Watermelon.

Since it's getting warmer, we've gathered  flavours we associate with Spring/Summer, for a special recipe. What are those flavours? Well, aloe vera juice and watermelon, and do they go well with matcha? Absolutely! 

World class cocktails take creativity, but not necessarily a lot of prep. Walking into this recipe, I thought it might take an hour, but it required 25 minutes. If you ask me, that's definitely worth it. Enjoy the recipe below, and leave a comment if you get to try it at your next bbq!
