Matcha Peachu by Monica Berg

We revisit one of our favourite ways to enjoy Matcha; the Matcha Peachu cocktail, created by Monica Berg, The World's 50 Best's Bartender's Bartender of the Year 2019.

Back in 2014 leading bartender Monica Berg, then bar manager of Pollen Street Social, shared her recipe for the dizzingly good Matcha Peachu cocktail with us. Four years on, it’s still a firm Canton team favourite.
