Green Tea Shots Recipe: A Vibrant Cocktail Choice!

There’s no tea or anything remotely healthy in this shot, but it’s definitely easier to drink than a shot of green juice with matcha. The Green Tea Shot is made with Irish whiskey, peach schnapps, and sweet-and-sour mix, topped with a splash of lemon-lime soda.

It’s a popular choice for parties. You can also double the ingredients and serve it in a rocks glass over ice as a cocktail. Its sweet and sour flavor is a crowd-pleaser, making it perfect for get-togethers with friends.

The shot is refreshing, slightly fizzy, and has a balanced sweet and sour taste, ideal for summer. Freeze your shot glasses ahead of time before serving the drinks for an extra refreshing touch.
