About this Recipe
Sake is known as also known as Rice Wine! It is a Japanese alcoholic beverage served in every Japanese restaurant. Traditionally it is served hot; however, in today’s world, people like to enjoy it ice-cold. In the past, I kept wondering if mixing hot Sake and Matcha powder was a good idea. It was, but to take it to the next step I needed to add a crucial element that everyone loves, Ice-cream!
Ice-cream is a sweet, creamy, and frozen delicacy that everyone all around the world enjoys. It comes in numerous flavors, textures, colors, and recipes. So why a float? When adding ice-cream, I had two routes for this recipe could take, the first one, a milkshake. A milkshake while it is delicious it lacks the element of elegance only an ice-cream beverage float could provide.
This recipe is a very interesting recipe since it can be considered either a Matcha Drink or a Matcha Dessert. It all depends on how you want to experience it. You can drink it or use a spoon to enjoy it as a Matcha Dessert (Similar to how you eat thick milkshakes).
If you have never tried a traditional float, then I encourage you to pour Coca-Cola/Pepsi or Root Beer on an empty glass and top it with vanilla flavored Ice-cream.
