These Matcha Pineapple Bubble Tea Cocktails offer an adult-friendly and homemade version of the popular Taiwanese milky drinks that are infused with alcohol. The drinks retain the same fruity flavors and tapioca gummy balls at the base of the drink, with added flavor of a flavored vodka to transition the drinks to be better suited to nights out.

The fruity beverage is made using a base of matcha green tea that is infused with pineapple juice for augmented fruit flavor. To the mixture tapioca pearls are added to give the beverage an authentic bubble tea aesthetic and taste, with floating black jelly balls that sink to the base of the cup. A shot of Smirnoff Sourced Pineapple vodka is added to each drink to give it an element of alcohol.
