Matcha Gimlet/Lime Rickey

This recipe is our very own Sarah’s creation! Read her blog about it here.

“…both gimlets and lime rickeys are made with gin, lime, and seltzer. The difference is that a lime rickey is unsweetened, while a gimlet traditionally uses Roses Lime for added sweetness.”

Ingredientsmatcha gimlet ingredients

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. freshly-squeezed lime juice (or sweetened bottled lime juice)
  • 2 oz. strong-brewed green tea – I used Hojicha for a more complex flavor


  1. Shake ingredients with crushed ice in a cocktail shaker, then pour into a large martini glass or tall cocktail glass.
  2. Top up with cold seltzer water, and garnish with a sprig of basil and thin slice of ginger.
