Everyone’s on the matcha green tea bandwagon, and it really is a fresh, cleansing flavor that makes cooks want to put it into everything from Beef Wellington to strawberry cheesecake. Since it’s late on a Wednesday afternoon, I’m opting for a matcha cocktail, muddled with mint, bourbon, a little sugar, and a lot of ice. Very zen…
