If you are looking for a nice refreshing shot to drink, you can’t go wrong with this green tea shot recipe.
The funny thing is, it doesn’t even have green tea in it! This green tea cocktail gets it name from its lovely light green colour and not from any green tea that is in it.
Unfortunately that does mean that this shot is strictly recreational and doesn’t have any antioxidant health benefits other than for your wellbeing and happiness.
Read on for the simple recipe that is sure to impress your guests.

What is a Green Tea Shot Made Of?
As I already mentioned, the green tea shot has no green tea in it.
It is made with Irish whiskey, Peach schnapps and sweet and sour mix topped with a lemon/lime soda or lemonade.
The resulting green tea shot is really light and easy to drink and tastes very peachy.
Tips About Green Tea Shot Alcohol Options
Lots of recipes call for this green tea shot to made with Jameson whisky but I have found it to be just as tasty with Jack Daniels or a good Scotch.
If you want to make the green tea shot without peach schnapps, you have a couple of options; you can either use the same flavored peach extract. (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). The other option is to use peach juice although it will change the look of the shot.
Can You Make A Green Tea Shot Without Sour Mix?
If you don’t have any sour mix, don’t fear, you can still make a green tea shot with sour mix from the store.
First of all, let’s talk about what sour mix (sometimes called sweet and sour mix) is.
You can buy bottles of sour mix at the store but if you want to make this shot and don’t have any on hand, you have a few options.
First of all, sour mix is simply margarita mix so if you can find some of that, it is an easy fix.
Second, you could make your own sour mix by boiling sugar and water and mixing it with lemon and lime juice.
This easy to make shot is so tasty and refreshing. It can easily be turned into a cocktail drink with a little extra soda.
