Old Fashioned Chai | Vegan-Gluten free | Christmas

Uppdaterat: 9 mars 2021

Hello my lovelies! Welcome to the final week of 5 weeks of Christmas. As this series comes to an end I wanted to share a few recipes related to cosy drinks fitting to the theme of this holiday and to start this week off let's enjoy a smooth, sweet and full of Christmas flavour Old Fashioned Chai. You can of course make a virgin version of this by not adding the bourbon simply add a bit more syrup.

What you need for Chai syrup:

2 1/2 dl (1 cup) water

4-6 tsp chai tea

5-6 tbsp maple syrup

1 vanilla bean

What you need for Chai old fashioned:

4 tbsp bourbon

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 dash grounded orange bitters

2-4 tbsp Chai tea syrup

What you need for serving:

Vegan milk

Cinnamon and star anise

In a pot add water and bring to a boil. Then take off the heat and add the Chai tea, (if you use leaves pop it in the pot with a tea strainer) maple syrup and sliced vanilla bean pop it into the water and cover with a lid for 15 minutes.

Bring to a boil on high heat for 5 minutes and take off the heat. Now that our Chai syrup is cooling let's get onto the next step.

In a cocktail shaker add bourbon, grounded orange bitters, lemon juice and 2 tbsp of the Chai syrup and shake until combined.

Strain into a glass and top off with vegan milk, garnish with star anise and cinnamon. I ended up foaming up some milk as well for that extra lovely milky finish.
