The green tea shot gets its name from its kinda greenish color – no green tea is actually used in this shot recipe. What you get are bright and soothing peachy flavors. it’s delicious!
Green Tea Shot
I used to bartend in Tokyo.
For about a year, I spent most of my nights in a rock bar pouring drinks and chatting with customers from all walks of life. American navy guys, Japanese business men, Harajuku girls, Australian school teachers, Disney dancers, you name it.
Every night was filled with crazy stories only a city like Tokyo can deliver.
The best part?
I got to test my cocktail skills on anyone interested in trying something new, which basically meant everyone in the bar. I perfected my frozen daiquiris by using the perfect ratio of frozen to fresh fruit, made some puckery citrus cocktails, electric blue drinks and purple fizzy bombs worth a gawk or two.
The drink of choice was the long Island iced tea and as far as shots were concerned, if I remember correctly, it was the kamikaze and slippery nipple that were all the rage. That was before the advent of mixologists and trendy bars with exorbitant cover charges, when the point of drinking was to well… Get drunk!
Nowadays I don’t drink that often but whenever I do decide to let loose, it’s usually with some wine or an easy to drink cocktail like the green tea shot.
How to make a green tea shot
Um, very easy. Four ingredients guys.
Whiskey, peach schnapps, sour mix and Sprite.
You put equal amounts of whiskey, peach schnapps and sour mix into a shaker filled with ice. Shake baby shake and pour into a shot glass. Top with a little Sprite and there you have it – a green tea shot that’s both refreshing and warming for the body.
And since many people have asked me where I got these cute little shot glasses, you can find them here on Amazon.
This is one of the very few shot recipes I enjoy drinking. My friends will be the first to tell you I’m not big on taking shots. I usually find them cloyingly sweet with an after taste that’s hard to get rid of.
This green tea shot however, is something I could drink in a martini glass! It has a light taste that goes down really nicely. So nicely in fact that I plan on serving it this upcoming holiday season!
