Transcript:Green Tea MartiniHi, I'm Brian Nishii from Forbidden City in New York City for About.com Food, and today I'm going to show you how to make a green tea martini.
Green Tea Martini IngredientsTo make a green tea martini, youll need:
- 2 ounces of Shochu, which is a Japanese vodka and lighter than a western vodka
- 2 ounces of green tea mix (green tea, honey, and water)
Mix Green Tea Martini IngredientsTo start youll want to have a chilled martini glass standing by, as most drinks taste much better in a chilled glass. You'll take your cocktail mixer and add equal parts of the Shochu and the green tea mix, about two ounces each. Take the top of the cocktail mixer and mix it up vigorously, dump the ice. The green tea will froth up as it comes up, now this mixture is just green tea, honey and water, that's all it is. But it is a glass of perfection right here as the green tea foams up, and that is how you make a green tea martini.
