If you haven't ordered a green-tea shot in 2022, then you're behind the trend.

First of all, by no means am I pushing any alcohol on anyone, I'm simply pointing out the obvious: Everywhere I go, the only thing I hear people ordering are green-tea shots (that or Casamigos tequila).

It's been the "go-to" sensation that's sweeping the nation.

For example: Say you're out with a group of friends and someone orders a round of shots. Chances are, you'll all agree if someone mentions green tea.

For those wondering what's in it, it's a dangerous yet smooth blend of equal parts Jameson Irish Whiskey, Peachtree schnapps and sour mix. Some places top it off with a splash of citrus or citrus soda, but it's not needed, in my opinion.

So, how popular is this drink?

I've been to multiple bars right here on the SouthCoast that have prepped the shots in large bottles, ready to pour at will. Whenever I hear someone ask a bartender what they recommend, it's the infamous green tea shot.

I, myself, have had my fair share socially, and it wasn't until late that I realized how sought-after this drink (mild, but strong if consumed in large quantities) can be.

The next time you're in a nightclub, a brewpub or a tavern, look around and observe how many people are ordering green-tea shots that seemingly appeared out of nowhere. only to take the bar scene by storm.

Cheers, but drink responsibly.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
