Jameson Whiskey Company invented a simple whiskey shot called the green tea shot, which comprises Jameson Irish Whiskey, Peach Schnapps, Sour Mix, and a splash of Lemon Lime Soda.
The name comes from the greenish color of the drink as it resembles green tea. Spoiler: there's no actual green tea in this shot.
Jameson Irish Whiskey: Irish whiskey is made from barley and has a lighter, smoother flavor compared to American whiskey. However, you can use any popular whiskey you'd like!
Peach Schnapps: Peach Schnapps is a peach liqueur (and my favorite ingredient) - it's what gives these shots their "umph" with all of that peachy flavor. SO good.
Sweet and Sour Mix: the sweet and sour mix really works well with the peach liqueur and balances out the sweet flavor with a little tangy sour flavor.
Don't have any sweet and sour mix? Use lemonade instead - or make your own by combining ½ lime (fresh lime juice), a ½ of a lemon (fresh lemon juice), and a 1 ounce of simple syrup or sugar.
Lemon-Lime Soda: I used a splash of sprite. It adds a bit of sweetness and a bit of fizz that's really refreshing.
Pro tip: If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a mason jar or any larger glass with a lid.
The name comes from the greenish color of the drink as it resembles green tea. It was invented by Jameson Whiskey Company and was named a green tea shot or "Jameson Green Tea Shot". Spoiler: there's no green tea in this shot.
A green tea shot will typically run you around $10 at a bar.
Absolutely - and it's super easy. Mix together equal parts lemon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup and you've got your own homemade sour mix.
The flavor of these whiskey based shots are sweet, slightly sour, and fruity - the perfect combination! It's similar to a kamikaze shot.
