Japan: Green Tea Martini

Next on our journey drinking around the world is Japan!

Other than sake, a flavor that the Japan pavilion is most known for is green tea.  Among other snacks, they offer the flavor in a Green Tea Martini, which you can learn how to replicate here!

For one Green Tea Martini, you will need:
  • 1 1/2 oz. (1 shot) green tea infused vodka
  • 4 1/2 oz. (3 shots) green tea
  • 1 tablespoon honey

The first thing you will need to do for this drink is to infuse the vodka with green tea.  This can be simply done by pouring a little extra vodka into a glass and placing the green tea bag into the vodka (as pictured to the right).  The flavor will be the best if left to steep overnight.

After this, you will want to make the actual green tea.  I used the same green tea packet first to attempt to get as much of the vodka that had been absorbed out.  You can heat the tea up and then ice it, or just allow the tea to steep at room temperature for a little extra time.

If you heat the tea, add the honey to the green tea while warm.  If not, just thorough mix the honey in either before or after adding the vodka to the green tea.

To summarize: 1. Make green tea infused vodka: 2. Make regular green tea: 3. Add honey: 4. Mix.

And that's it!

Kanpai! (that's "cheers" in Japanese)
