What is a white tea shot?

This simple white tea shot recipe is quite similar to the green tea shot, except - you guessed it - it's white! As I mentioned in the green tea shot, the color doesn't come from the actual green tea, it comes from the color of the shot itself. The same applies here.

Is white tea used in a white tea shot?

There's no actual white tea bags used for the recipe, it gets it's name because it's white/clear in color! It's safe to say that you can put your loose leaf tea aside, need for it here!

Now that we've got that out of the way, these shots are one of my favorite new recipes. It's only three ingredients and total time to make? Maybe 3 minutes. It's quick and has the best flavors - peach, citrus, and smooth vodka to round it all out.

Ingredients

If you can recall, I used Jameson irish whiskey in the classic green tea shot. For the white tea shot, we're using vodka! It's a mix of peach schnapps, sour mix, and vodka all added to a cocktail shaker for a super refreshing alcoholic drink. Pour into your favorite shot glasses and throw it on back!

Peach Schnapps: this is what gives the shot a fruity flavor. The sweet taste really balances the shot without giving it an overpowering flavor.

Vodka: using a smooth triple distilled vodka is best!

Sweet and Sour Mix: this adds a nice touch of citrusy flavor, however if you don't have any, you can use lemon-lime soda for a fizzy drink. Or make your own!

Mixing Tools

While you don't need any fancy bar equipment or bartending tools, I do recommend using a cocktail shaker (one with a strainer) to mix the ingredients. It's the easiest way to make the perfect shots!

You'll also need a jigger to measure the ingredients. This recipe is listed in ounces and a jigger has the units of measure already there. It just makes it easier. Totally not needed but highly recommended!

Also, I feel like this goes without say, but you'll need shot glasses too.

    I love this take on green tea shots! It was just as good (if not better). I’m glad I found this because I didn’t have whiskey so I made these with vodka - we loved them!!
