The cake in the opera cake needed to be moistened with a syrup. The syrup was just a simple syrup with some added flavour. I remembered that I had seen some green tea liqueur and I though that it would go well in the syrup. The green tea liqueur was a nice dark green and it tasted like green tea and had hints of spices and berries. It added a nice aroma to the syrup and the opera cake.

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon green tea liqueur

1. Bring every thing to boil in a small sauce pan stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
2. Remove from heat and let cool.
