Green Tea Vodka Highball: Perfect Spring Party Cocktail

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

I’ve said if before (VOE Imbibery, Spring 2013) and I’ll say it again: this green tea flavored vodka produced by Charbay is one of the most perfect of refreshing spring cocktail ingredients to serve in martinis or highballs at a pool or garden party. Charbay Green Tea Vodka’s main essence is an extraction of rare first-growth green tea from the Anhwei Province in China.


Green Tea Vodka Highball


2 ounces Charbay Green Tea Vodka

2 ounces fresh lemon juice

2 ounces simple syrup

Soda water

Lemon wedge for garnish



Pour the vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup into an ice filled highball glass.

Top with soda water.

Pour the contents into a shaker to mix.

Pour back into the glass.

Garnish with the lemon wedge.
