White Tea Shot Recipe l The Perfect Sip for Every Occasion

Imagine a warm evening breeze whispers through your hair, carrying the sweet scent of peaches. You raise a chilled glass filled with a vibrant, citrusy liquid, a refreshing escape from the day’s worries. This isn’t a dream, it’s the delightful reality of a white tea shot.

The white tea shot is a playful cocktail that captures the essence of summer in a single sip.  It’s perfect for unwinding after a long day, or adding a touch of whimsy to a get-together with friends.  The combination of vodka, peach schnapps, and sweet and sour creates a vibrant, citrusy base, while a splash of lemon-lime soda adds a touch of effervescence.

Here’s what you’ll need to create this little piece of sunshine:


  • ½ ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce peach schnapps
  • ½ ounce sweet and sour mix
  • Splash of lemon-lime soda (club soda for a less sweet option)
  • Ice
  • Peach slice or maraschino cherry for garnish (optional)


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice.
  2. Add the vodka, peach schnapps, and sweet and sour mix.
  3. Shake well for about 10 seconds, just until chilled.
  4. Strain into a chilled shot glass.
  5. Top with a splash of lemon-lime soda.
  6. Garnish with a peach slice or maraschino cherry, if desired.
