The only good thing about this cold weather is being able to use delicious spices like CHAI. Oh my goodness have I missed chai everything. It tastes like Christmas in a glass! I teamed up with Chicago Vodka and 11th Orchard Bitters to make this unbelievably delicious holiday drink. These are both amazing Chicago companies. 11th Orchard Bitters uses only hand selected, wild foraged Chicago ingredients in their bitters. They never use any artificial ingredients or preservatives. I can’t believe I haven’t been drinking this all along!
What you need:
1 oz kahlua
1 oz Chai infused heavy cream(see below for recipe)
1 oz Chicago Vodka
3 dashes of 11th Orchard Seasonal Bitters
Add the vodka and Kahlúa to an Old Fashioned glass filled with ice.
Top with infused heavy cream and stir.
Garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg. Enjoy!
Chai Infused Cream
- Combine two to three Chai tea bags with with heavy whipping cream, cover, and refrigerate 8 to 12 hours.
- Strain the cream, pressing on the solids to extract as much cream as possible. Discard the solids. Some cream will have been absorbed into the solids; add additional cream if necessary for a recipe. If you are not using the infusion immediately, cover and refrigerate it until needed.
