Vanilla Vodka Chai Tea

How amazing does this look! Chai is one of my FAVORITE beverages, and if there’s a classy way to add booze (and cinnamon sticks), I’ll do it. Check this out, courtesy of the My Life as a Mrs. blog. It’ll be showing up at my Christmas Day celebration, that’s for sure.


6 oz. strong Chai Tea (I used 1 tea bag for 6 oz. water)
2 oz. vanilla vodka
¾ oz. amaretto liqueur
½ oz. simple sugar
½ oz. half n half


Bring 3 cups of water to a boil and steep 4 tea bags for 2 to 4 minutes (following the tea directions on the box). Allow to cool and refrigerate until time of use (3 cups tea will yield 4 drinks).

In a cocktail shaker or tall glass, combine ingredients and shake or stir generously (shaking will froth up the half n half and help release the infused flavor in the spirits). Fill glass with ice and pour drink over ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or two.
