If you do not have a cocktail shaker you can mix the ice, vodka, peach schnapps, and sour mix in a cup using a spoon or shake it in a mason jar with a lid. Then strain it over the shot glasses, again to remove the ice from falling in. So, most white tea shots are not made with tea, but this recipe actually has white tea in it. The tea can be made using white tea bags or loose leaf tea.
White tea comes from the very new leaves and buds that are harvested from the camellia sinensis plant for only a couple weeks in spring in Fujian, China. It is only considered white tea if it is harvest from this region. These shots are so much fun and are great for parties!
See notes below for turning this into a cocktail. These white tea shots do not have caffeine since they are not made with actual white tea. Other versions, such as our white rum tea do contain small traces of caffeine since the recipe uses brewed tea. Sip this white tea shot longer and make it last ! You can turn it into a how to use a glass teapot cocktail.
It was the sweet and sour mix that is added that gives the shot a greenish tinge that reminded them of a cup of green tea. Even though there is no actual green tea in the shot. Combine 3 sprigs of thyme, lemon juice (or a whole lemon wedge/round for more flavor), and honey in a cocktail shaker and muddle with the end of a wooden spoon. Then add in the vodka and tea and give it a good stir.
Today I am sharing with you my favorite basic white tea shot. It is so good with its peachy, fizzy flavors! It’s also so easy to make and doesn’t have any unnecessary ingredients.
I’m a vodka drinker so this white tea shot is now one of my favorites. Yes and no, the real version of this white tea cocktail that I have made here, does not have any tea included in it. But, in some recipes there is actually tea as an ingredient.
