What is a White Tea Shot

A White Tea Shot is a refreshing cocktail made with vodka, peach schnapps, sour mix, and a splash of lemon-lime soda. It’s a light-bodied and delicious beverage that’s perfect for any occasion, especially parties and festive events.

What’s in a White Tea Shot

A White Tea Shot is a cocktail made with four main ingredients – vodka, peach schnapps, sour mix, and lemon-lime soda. Vodka forms the base of the cocktail, while peach schnapps adds a fruity flavor and sweetness. Sour Mix provides a tart and tangy taste, balancing the sweetness of the other ingredients, and lemon-lime soda adds a bubbly texture and a citrusy flavor.

The result is a light and refreshing cocktail with a sweet and sour taste that’s perfect for sipping on a warm day or serving at a party. I’ve also covered the difference between a White Tea Shot vs Green Tea Shot if you’d like to compare and determine your favorite.

Ingredient Notes

White tea shot ingredients.
  • Vodka – Vodka has a relatively neutral flavor, which allows the other ingredients to shine through. When mixed with the other ingredients, vodka helps to create a smooth and well-rounded flavor profile in the cocktail.
  • Peach Schnapps – Peach schnapps is a sweet and fruity liqueur that’s used in a White Tea Shot to add a distinct peach flavor and sweetness to the cocktail. The sweetness of the schnapps helps to balance out the tartness of the sour mix, while its fruity flavor adds a delicious depth to the cocktail. You can also use it in shots such as a White Gummy Bear Shot or a Water Moccasin Shot.
  • Sweet and Sour Mix – Sweet and Sour Mix is a blend of Simple Syrup and lemon and lime juice. The sourness of the mix helps to balance out the sweetness of the peach schnapps, while the sweetness helps to offset the tartness.
  • Lemon Lime Soda – The lemon lime soda adds a bubbly texture and a citrusy flavor to the cocktail. The soda is typically added in a small amount, so it doesn’t overpower the other flavors in the drink.
