The Green tea shot is a bit of a misnomer. There is no green tea in this shot. Mixing vodka into green tea will not give you a green tea shot. In fact, a lot of people don’t even think this shot tastes like green tea, though it certainly looks like green tea. Some people think it tastes more like peach oblong tea, if you’ve had that before, but it doesn’t have green tea’s slight bitterness at all.
Green tea shots are surprisingly smooth for how much alcohol goes into them. This is a combination of their ingredients. They’re a good way to start out a night and loosen up. It’s easy to have several green tea shots in a row because they’re not harsh and taste very good. Even people who don’t care for whiskey can enjoy them, because peach is the predominant taste.
However, if you or your friends don’t care for peach for some reason, avoid green tea shots. You will find them really disgusting. Also, if sweet alcoholic drinks are not your thing, this is not the shot for you.
What’s in a green tea shot, anyway?
For a drink made into a shot, there are a lot of ingredients in a green tea shot drink. It takes some practice to get the mix just right, even if you measure the ingredients precisely. It’s surprising how many bartenders can have trouble making green tea shots.
Here are the core ingredients you need:
1/3 ounce peach schnapps
1/3 ounce whiskey
1/3 sweet and sour
1 splash Sprite
How to make a Green Tea Shot:
Mix these ingredients except Sprite into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake it and strain it into a shot glass. Add the splash of Sprite and serve.
It’s really hard to taste anything but the peach schnapps. Schnapps generally has an overwhelming taste and that’s obvious in a green tea shot. Seriously, if you hate the taste of peach—and there are such people out there—this is not a drink you should ever order or try.
Most people use Jame son Irish Whiskey for Green Tea Shot Recipe. Jame son is a distinctive whiskey with its own richness, so you’ll get a touch of Jame son class in the taste under all that peach. If Jame son isn’t to your taste, try another kind of whiskey that you like better.
Green tea shots are enjoyed by both men and women alike. They have a nice balance between sweet and savory. They hit hard enough to ease the mood, but the kick of a green tea shot won’t knock anyone flat after they throw one back. If you want to start your party partying, this is a good drink to order.
If you like the taste of a green tea shot, you can easily make a larger drink version of it. As you can tell from the ingredients list, a green tea shot consists of a third of peach schnapps, a third of whiskey, and a third of sweet and sour, with a splash of lemonade or Sprite. This is true for whatever size of glass you use. Keep in mind that’s going to be a lot of peach schnapps taste, so try to keep it small unless you are a really, really big fan of green tea shots.
This makes green tea shot drinks a great choice for warm summer nights. There’s something about a cool peach drink that is really refreshing on a summertime Saturday night, whether you’ve used Sprite for a pleasant wobbliness or lemonade for a hometown taste. Taken together with the Jame son in a green tea shot, downing a green tea shot means it is time to start having a good night
