FRGMNT Coffee out of Minnesota was “born out of our love of coffee, excitement over trying new things, and joy in bringing people together.” The company has four multi-roaster cafes in and around Minneapolis and has worked with dozens of coffee roasters, chocolate makers, tea providers, and local artisans. Food and Beverage Director Truman Vieth curates a rotating seasonal menu of drinks that combine unique ingredients to showcase their coffee and tea offerings. One such drink has found a permanent place on FRGMNT’s menu: the Matcha Tonic.

Matcha has been a welcome addition to cafes in North America over the last decade, though it’s more common to see milky matcha lattes on menus. While we love a good matcha latte, there’s never a bad time to gulp down a fancy tonic concoction.

Developed by the team upon opening the cafe, FRGMNT Coffee’s Matcha Tonic is a beverage that layers a locally sourced tonic water with matcha and rhubarb to create a “floral, effervescent, and refreshing” tea-forward refresher.

“The Matcha Tonic combines Spirit Tea’s beautiful matcha with rhubarb bitters and locally made 3Leche tonic water resulting in a delightfully refreshing floral take on matcha. The Florals of the matcha and bitters upfront leave you refreshed,” explains Vieth, “while the bitterness and tannins from the tonic and matcha have you going back for more.”

The Matcha Tonic ($5.99) can be found at all four FRGMNT locations: North Loop (729 Washington Ave N Minneapolis, MN 55401), Eden Prarie (11095 Viking Dr, Eden Prairie, MN 55344), St. Anthony Main (43 SE Main St Minneapolis, MN 55414), and Mill District (1011 S Washington Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55415).
