Non-Alcoholic Drink Recipe for Christmas

The Festive Non-Alcoholic Matcha Peppermint Martini

Woohoo! The holidays are finally upon us! And if your 2024 New Year’s resolutions are anything like ours, then you’ll be trying to reduce your alcohol consumption… so you might as well get ahead of those goals early with this DELICIOUS matcha peppermint mocktail.

This recipe is perfect for friends, family, and colleagues who prefer non-alcoholic beverages but still want to enjoy something special and festive. A hit at holiday parties, Christmas Eve feasts, and even pairs well with your Christmas Day Roast! Plus, you no longer have to worry about Uncle Jerry getting too cheeky because there’s zero booze in sight! 

It’s even the perfect treat for Santa, because, let’s be real, the guy's probably had his fill of plain old milk. And if milk's all you’re willing to give the old man, at least upgrade him to OAT milk, okay? It’s 2023, folks!

Anyways, give this festive bevvy a try and let us know how you get on!


- 1 tsp PerfectTed Matcha Powder
2 oz Peppermint Tea (chilled)
1 oz White Chocolate Syrup (non-alcoholic)
1/2 oz Vanilla Syrup (we love Sweet Freedom's Barista Vanilla Syrup)*
Crushed Peppermint Candy (for rim)
Fresh Mint Leaves (optional for garnish)

    If you prefer a sweeter drink, adjust the amount of syrup to your liking.


    Cocktail Shaker
    Martini Glass
    Small Plate (for rimming the glass)


      1) Prepare the Glass

      Place crushed peppermint candy on a small plate.
      Moisten the rim of your martini glass with a little water or simple syrup.
      Place the glass's rim into the crushed peppermint candy to create your candy-coated edge.

        2) Brew the Peppermint Tea

        Brew a strong cup of peppermint tea (You will need 2 oz for the martini).
        Allow it to chill in the refrigerator until cool. 

          3) Mix the Mocktail

          In a cocktail shaker, combine the chilled peppermint tea, matcha powder, white chocolate syrup, and vanilla syrup.
          Add ice to the shaker, cover, and shake vigorously until the matcha is fully dissolved and the mixture is well-chilled.

            4) Serve

            Strain the mixture into your prepared glass (prevent the ice from falling into the glass).
            Optional: Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint for an additional festive touch.
