Drinks list: The Idle Grinch

This festive cocktail, created by The Idle Rocks‘ head bartender Gabriel Marono, uses matcha-infused rum to give it its distinctive Grinch-green colour

You will need

Bacardi Carta Blanca 50ml
Matcha tea powder 4 tbsp
Citric acid 5ml
Sugar syrup 20ml
Ginger ale to top up


1. To infuse the rum: mix the rum with the matcha powder and leave to infuse overnight.
2. Place the infused rum, citric acid and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for ten seconds.
3. Pour into a tall glass and top with ginger ale.
4. Finish with a sprinkle of matcha powder.

The extra effort required to infuse the rum is worth it for the delicious result‘, says Gabriel
