A green tea shot is a popular shot that is made up of Whiskey, Peach Schnapps, Sweet and Sour, and Sprite. This shot has been a favorite in bars and nightclubs. The green tea shot is sometimes referred to as a “Jameson Green Tea.” Jameson is commonly used as the whiskey in this shot. Irish whiskey is the best whiskey to use for this shot.

Many people think that this shot has green tea in it. This shot does not contain any actual green tea and gets its name from the resemblance to green tea.

Green tea shots are very simple to make. This recipe requires a cocktail shaker to shake the ingredients together. To make a green tea shot, pour the whiskey, peach schnapps, and the sweet and sour in a cocktail shaker. Add ice into the cocktail shaker and shake until the liquid is cold. Pour the shots equally into two shot glasses. Top each shot glass with sprite until full.

What Does a Green Tea shot taste like?
