pina colada day tradewinds recipe img 9501

It's the quintessential beach vacation cocktail. It's an icon of the 1980s. It's a cocktail with a soundtrack all of its own. It's the Piña Colada, a blend of white rum, coconut cream, and fresh pineapple juice. And today, July 10, is National Piña Colada Day, so take some time to raise a glass to this classic drink.

The basic flavor combination of rum, pineapple, and coconut is a classic for a reason though.

When you're tired of the same old, same old latte, the matcha latte offers the perfect, indulgent alternative. This Japanese green drink not only looks super cool but tastes delicious. This classic drink is made from only a few simple ingredients: green matcha powder, milk or cream, and (sometimes) water.

Below, learn how to make a matcha latte in under five minutes and how to customize your drink to your specific taste preferences.
What is matcha?

Matcha is a green, finely ground powder made from Japanese green tea leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Using young green tea leaves and making them into powder, this powder is easily combined with water to create a delicious drink. Although matcha tea can be enjoyed alone, a matcha latte brings your enjoyment to the next level by combining matcha tea with a creamy froth. Many people love matcha simply for its delicious taste alone, but it also has a variety of health benefits -- thanks to its high antioxidant content. The taste of matcha is often described as "earthy" or slightly bitter.
