Green Tea Whiskey Cocktail with Ginseng Recipe

At the 23rd event, we partnered with Trish Rosseine of Williamsburg Hotel NY to concoct a creative and unique cocktail using Senbird’s Ouka Sencha Green Tea and Nikka’s whiskey to create a Green Tea Whiskey Cocktail with Ginseng. This tasty punch is vibrant with lemon soaked in green tea for over 24 hours and a bit of chardonnay vinegar. The added ginseng works with green tea to create a refreshing and energy-boosting cocktail. Try out the recipe below!

Green Tea Whiskey Cocktail with Ginseng

Total Time: 15 minutes + chill time
Servings: 10 people


  • 2 oz Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky
  • 1.5 oz of Ouka Sencha Green Tea
  • 1/4 oz Lemon Oleo Saccharum
  • 1/4 oz Red Panax Ginseng
  • 1/2 oz Wildflower Honey
  • 1 bar spoon Chardonnay Vinegar
  • 1-2 Lemons


  1. Prepare and strain the sencha green tea, then pour it into a large heatproof pitcher.
  2. Slice the lemon(s) into thin slices and add to the pitcher of green tea. Leave the pitcher in the fridge to allow the lemon to soak and for the tea to chill. (Best if the lemon and tea soak overnight)
  3. Add in whiskey, lemon olio saccharum, ginseng, honey, and chardonnay vinegar
  4. Serve cold with ice and garnish with lemon slices if desired. Enjoy!
