Asking for a green tea shot has become more common than you might expect around the world, but despite the name, there isn’t actually any green tea in this beverage.

What is a Green Tea Shot?

A green tea shot is a recent development in the world of mixologists that seems to be popular. The shot looks similar to a green tea even though there is no actual green tea in it. It has a bright peach flavor because of the peach schnapps in it. There are also a decent amount of calories in a green tea shot, coming at about 75 calories in a single one of these shooters.

Green Tea Shot Recipe

If you want to learn how to make a green tea shot, it is surprisingly simple, in comparison to some of the other mixology creations of recent years.


  • Jameson’s whiskey
  • Sprite
  • Peach schnapps
  • Sour mix

How to Make?

  • Step 1: Add 0.5 ounces of Jameson’s whiskey to a shaker
  • Step 2: Add 0.5 ounces of peach schnapps to the shaker
  • Step 3: Add 1 dash of Sprite
  • Step 4: Add 0.5 ounces of Sour mix
  • Step 5: Shake thoroughly and pour out

So, just add, mix, and shake! If you make this shot properly, there should only be about 1 ounce of alcohol, half of that being a 40% alcohol content, the other half being 15-20% alcohol. This recipe makes only one shot; double the ingredients to prepare this for two shots.

Note: If you were hoping to learn about a concentrated way to benefit from the healthy nature of green tea, you can try making your own “true” green tea shot. Simply use a half teaspoon of green tea extract powder and mix it into 2 ounces of water. Shake it up thoroughly and then drink it down, which should give you a healthy boost, although the taste might not be the most pleasant thing you’ve ever experienced.
