Today's cocktail is designed to warm you up as those cold days of winter start to settle in. Chai is a type of tea that is made using Indian spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and ginger. This gives it an amazing aroma that will fill your house with the smell of sweet spice, perfect for the holiday season. Chai can be made with hot water, if you want to remove the dairy from this recipe, but I think the warm milk gives it a nostalgic vibe, so we kept it in.
We chose Sailor Jerry as a spiced rum, mainly because I like the label, and it reminded me of going south. Any good spiced rum would work, and if you're looking for a local alternative, I think the Northern Comfort from Sussex Distilllers would be great.
This video was a short one, and I promise some of our cocktails will be more involved, but like we promised in the beginning, this series is for everyone. The holidays can be very hectic, with travel, family, food, drink, parties, more travel, and on and on. This tea cocktail is perfect for after a day out skating or sliding with the kids, or shoveling the snow off the roof to make way for Santa.
