Start your day on the right foot with this Rising Sun Mocktail. Fresh orange juice is topped with unsweetened matcha concentrate for a grassy, bright take on a classic Mimosa. The ancho salt rim makes the flavors pop and puts the good back in good morning.

Rising Sun Mocktail


  • 2 tbsp Ancho chili salt*
  • 1/3 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed or bottled)
  • 1 tsp simple syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Matcha concentrate**
  • 2 lime wedges
  • Ice


  1. Pour 2 tablespoons of ancho chili salt onto a plate. Rim a 1/2 inch swath around glass with lime wedge then roll in chili salt. After rimming the glass, hold upside down and tap it lightly to shake off any excess granules.
  2. Fill glass with ice and add orange juice.
  3. Add simple syrup, if using.
  4. Slowly pour matcha concentrate over the top. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.

*Ancho Chili Salt

Add 6 tablespoons of good quality salt such as Jacobsen Sea Salt, and 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder to a small bowl. Mix to combine.

**Matcha Concentrate

Sift 1 teaspoon of Matcha into a flat-bottomed bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of warm water to make a paste. Add 1/3 cup of 175-degree water, then whisk thoroughly in a W pattern until frothy. Add a pinch a kosher salt. Whisk one final time. Set aside.
