Green Tea Shot

green tea shot with jameson whiskey

On a regular basis, we are excited to create something unique and exceptional for those who stay with us. Today, I would like to suggest a beverage that has been a favorite among many people due to the fact that it has a flavor that is both distinctive and refreshing: the Green Tea Shot. There is no actual green tea present in this beverage, despite its name. This delectable cocktail, on the other hand, is made by combining whiskey, peach schnapps, sour mix, and a dash of lemon-lime soda. The result is a flavor that is surprisingly reminiscent of green tea. It’s ideal for individuals who are looking for something that is not only unique but also absolutely mouthwatering.

Tasting Notes

The Green Tea Shot is a perfectly balanced combination of sweet and sour flavors, which makes it an extraordinarily refreshing beverage. Peach schnapps adds a delicious sweetness to the mixture, which works wonderfully to contrast the sourness of the other ingredients. You get a smooth and rich undertone that rounds out the cocktail and gives it a depth that is not too overbearing when you use whiskey as the base. The addition of the lemon-lime soda results in a bubbly finish that makes each and every sip more pleasurable.

Equipment and Glassware


  • 1/2 ounce Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Peach Schnapps
  • 1/2 ounce Sour Mix
  • A splash of Lemon-Lime Soda


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Pour the Jameson Irish Whiskey, Peach Schnapps, and Sweet and Sour Mix over the ice.
  3. Shake well until the outside of the shaker feels cold.
  4. Strain the mixture into a shot glass.
  5. Top it off with a splash of Lemon-Lime Soda.
  6. Serve immediately, and enjoy!

Pro Tips

  • Mix the ingredients thoroughly until the shaker is cold for an exceptionally smooth cocktail. Your shot will be perfectly chilled as a result of this technique.
  • In order to achieve the desired level of sweetness and carbonation, you can try varying the amount of lemon-lime soda that you use.

When to Serve

The Green Tea Shot is a versatile beverage that is ideal for a variety of events. In addition to serving it as a welcome drink at parties, you can also serve it as a celebration shot at gatherings, or you can simply enjoy it with your friends while you are out. On hot summer days or as a palate cleanser in between stronger beverages, its light flavor is perfect.

Which Liquor Brands to Choose

Choosing ingredients of the highest quality is really necessary if you want to get the most out of your Green Tea Shot. I recommend Jameson Irish whiskey for its smoothness and delicate sweetness, both of which complement the other flavors.  A good choice for peach schnapps is DeKuyper Peachtree since it possesses a distinct peach flavor that does not overpower the drink. This makes it an outstanding choice.

People who are looking for a new way to consume whiskey were the inspiration for the creation of the Green Tea Shot, which is a pleasant and easy-to-drink option. It is believed to have been created in the early 2000s as a part of the trend of flavored shots, however, its genesis is a little bit of a mystery. The drink’s color and the subtle herbal overtones that the combination of ingredients produces are the sources of inspiration for the name “green tea.”
