Are yall ready for St. Patty’s Day?  If not, here ya go!  Our Sip of the Month is PERFECT for your party planning event.  Who would have known?  A Green Tea Shot!!!
A green tea shot is a shot-sized cocktail made with Irish whiskey.  Despite looking a bit like a green tea made with real tea leaves, this alcoholic drink doesn’t actually contain any tea, but since it is the month of the Irish, we must get this recipe out!  The trick is the “green” color actually comes from the sour mix.   According to the ChefIso website, the Green Tea Shot was invented by the Jameson whiskey company, so to stay true to its origins, stick with Jameson. But also feel free to substitute in your favorite Japanese, Irish, or American whiskey. You want to finish your shots with a splash of lemon-lime soda to dilute some of the intensity, add a bit of sweetness, and introduce some carbonation for a rounder and more balanced drink. And though it’s called a Green Tea “Shot,” don’t feel like you have to down it all in one go. Most prefer to drink it in 4-5 sips.
Classic Green Tea Shot Recipe
  • 1/2 ounce Irish Whiskey, such as Jameson (15 ml)
  • 1/2 ounce Peach Schnapps (15 ml)
  • 1/2 ounce Sour Mix (15 ml)
  • Splash of Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
  • 2 – 4 ice cubes

How to make:

 

Take a shaker and fill with some ice cubes. (If you don’ have a shaker then you can avoid and mix as your preferred style.)

 

After ice, now add peach schnapps, sour mixer and Irish whiskey with proper quantity, all should equal quantities.

 

Next, shake properly to mix or combine each with others and also shot cool down for ice cube.

 

When done, pour into small beakers glass or shot glasses (don’t pour ice into the glasses). Now you can enjoy,  but also if you offering someone then add lemon and lime soda on the top of the glass (Which looks wonderful).
