What is a Green tea Shot?
Green tea shot, otherwise known as Jameson Green tea sh0t, is an easy-to-make, refreshing cocktail that comes in the size of a shot. What is interesting about this palatable drink is that it, in actuality, doesn’t have green tea as a part of its content.
This whiskey-based cocktail gets its name from its appearance being of a greenish tea colour.
It is a sweet alcoholic drink that refreshes the taste buds and wakens up your palates while livening up your night, all the while making you feel like you are keeping your health in check.
It was originally invented by an Irish Whiskey Company, Jameson.
The drink is straightforward to make and you can enjoy it at home (or serve it to the guests, whichever pleases the situation). It is, however, not mandatory to use Jameson Whiskey while preparing the mix.
How to make a Green tea shot and what’s in it?
- The green tea shot ingredients include:
- -1/2 ounce Irish Whiskey(Jameson, in order to be loyal to its origin)
- -1/2 ounce Peach Schnapps
- -1/2 ounce Sour Mix (also known as a sweet and sour mix)
- -Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
- -ice cubes
take your shaker out and:
- Fill the shaker with ice cubes (as many or as less as you desire)
- Add Whiskey, Peach Schnapps, sweet & sour mixer.
- Shake vigorously to allow the ingredients to mix properly.
- Cool the mixture.
- Pour it into shot glasses (remember to use the strainer to keep the ice from falling in)
- Add sprite or a lemon-lime soda.
-Enjoy the shot!
It takes about 10-15 minutes for the preparation and making of the green tea shot alcohol, and then it will be ready to be served. Pour the green tea shot into a bigger glass and have as a regular cocktail if you aren’t a big fan of shots.

What makes tea shot special
Green tea alcohol drinks are great in being an all-season drink, meaning it is perfect for any season and occasion. For instance, it can be a night out or a house party or a regular weekend.
Its blend of sweet and sour plays gently with the taste buds, leaving a lingering taste you cannot forget while the alcohol content hits you just the right amount.
It may not be the best choice to start off with for beginners and for those of us who cannot hold our alcohol but its freshness and genuineness is undeniable. Also, for obvious reasons, it may not sit well with those who do not enjoy peach schnapps.
How much does it cost? ( green tea shot price )
The shot price ranges from 9-12 USD (1630-2184LKR) per shot.
