Try mixing a Green Tea Martini for St. Patrick’s Day

The Union staff

The Salada Tea Co. has come up with a martini made with at least one ingredient that is supposed to be good for you – green tea, as it has so many antioxidants. Oh well, anything to give yourself permission to drink a martini.

Here is the recipe:

1 ounce Salada 100% Green Tea, chilled

1/2 ounce Grand Marnier

2 ounces citron vodka of your choice



Lime Juice

Lime slices


Combine green tea, Grand Marnier and vodka in a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with lime juice and super-fine sugar. Garnish with lime slices and drink.
