What does mean exactly?
Why is it called a green tea shot? Image of the first green tea shot. Because of its greenish hue, it is known as green tea. Due to the fact that Jameson whiskey was originally used in its creation, it is also known as Jameson Green Tea.

What Flavor Does It Have?
A green tea shot has a boozy whiskey flavour that warms the back of the throat and is sweet, citrusy, and peachy. Given that a green tea only has one ounce of alcohol, it is quite simple to consume and won’t make you intoxicated. Although the size of a shot glass varies from country to country, a shot in the United States weighs 1.48 ounces. So you should experience a pleasant little buzz that lasts for about an hour.
Ingredients for a green tea shot
Jameson Irish Whiskey: Because the Jameson whiskey company created Jameson whiskey, it is the suggested brand. However, you’re welcome to use American whiskey or any other well-known whiskey brand. You won’t be able to discern the difference because this is a whiskey cocktail and the alcohol flavour is really mild.
Cocktail mix known as “sour mix” is produced by combining equal portions of lemon and lime juice with some simple syrup and shaking it with ice cubes. It is available at select grocery stores and liquor stores.
Peach Schnapps is a grain spirit that has been sweetened with fruit and sugar and is frequently used as a cocktail mixer.
Lemonade or lemon-lime soda: Since I love sour drinks, I personally prefer using sugar-free lemonade for this beverage. Use sweetened lemonade or Sprite for a little fizz if you prefer sweet.
How to Prepare Your Own Sweet Mix
Making your own sour mix is a great alternative if you find store-bought versions to be overly sweet. You will require:
sugar, 3 tablespoons
14 cup of water
1/4 cup of strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice (no pulp)
1/4 cup of strained, freshly squeezed lime juice (no pulp)
A dash of salt
1 ounce of vodka, 1 ounce of peach schnapps, 0.5 ounces of lemon juice, and 0.5 ounces of simple syrup go into making a white tea shot. After adding ice to a cocktail shaker, the contents are added and shaken until chilled. The white tea shot resembles hazy tap water once it has been strained and placed in a shot glass.
Japanese Green Shot (Tokyo Iced Tea Shot)
Compared to the green tea and white tea shots, the Tokyo iced tea shot has more alcohol and additives. Even though recipes can differ, mixologists generally agree on the following ingredients:
Gin, rum, tequila, vodka, and Midori melon liqueur in an equal mixture.
sour and sweet mixture
Lemon wedge for decoration
Are shots of tea healthy?
When consumed frequently, matcha and green tea can lower the chance of developing cancer because they are both known to have beneficial ingredients. Drinking green tea shots has reportedly been shown to lessen tumour size and stop breast cancer from progressing.
Cocktail in a
Why not turn green tea shots into a drink instead if you don’t like taking shots but still like the flavour?
This green tea can simply be transformed into a green tea martini. Simply shake the contents for a little while longer to allow the ice cubes to melt, then top with additional lemon-lime soda or lemonade. Alternatively, serve it as a cocktail in a tall glass over ice.
Compared to a concentrated shot, the taste will be diluted but simpler to savour.
Green Tea Mocktail in a (Non-Alcoholic)
Simply swap out the alcohol for 0.5 ounces of fresh lime juice and 1.5 ounces of coconut water to create a non-alcoholic green tea shot.
Alternately, you could substitute green tea for the alcohol in this shot to make it a healthy brew. A tasty meal that is invigorating and rich in antioxidants is shared by my friend Matt.
