This Green Tea and Thyme Martini recipe is perfect for when you want a cocktail, but you’re a little under the weather! This easy martini is a cold version of a hot toddy.



For the Green Tea:

  • 3 Green Tea Bags
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 Sprigs Fresh Thyme

For the Martini:

  • 2 1/2 ounces prepared Green Tea
  • 1 1/2 ounces Vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice


Add 2 cups of water to a microwavable dish (like a large Pyrex measuring cup) and heat until boiling in the microwave, about 5 minutes.

Add the tea bags, honey and fresh thyme to the boiling water. Cover with a plate and let steep for 10 minutes.

Remove the thyme and let cool in the refrigerator until you’re ready. (Or you can use the “quick cool” method I mentioned above)

In a shaker filled with ice, add 2 1/2 oz. of your brewed tea, the vodka and lemon juice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass.

Garnish with a fresh thyme sprig and a slice of lemon.

Recipe Notes

You’ll have plenty of tea leftover for making more green tea martinis, or just for drinking. The tea would also be great hot with a shot of bourbon!
