My last few posts have been in slight denial that winter is here; for this post I have decided to embrace the chilly season and make a winter warming spiced vanilla chai latte. It is my take on a white Russian but with the addition of vanilla vodka and with chai latte mixed into the milk.
I was so excited to try this recipe, I am a massive fan of chai tea lattes (less so recently once I found out my favorite from Starbucks contains a rather scary 26 teaspoons of sugar per serving). I have used vanilla vodka and less kahlua than you would in a traditional white Russian so you can really get the warming spices from the chai tea coming through.
Absolut Vanilla Vodka
Half milk half single cream
Chai Latte Mix
Cinnamon to garnish
In a boston glass filled with ice add:
35ml Absolut Vanilla
75ml Chai Latte half milk and cream mixture
Shake for around 15 seconds
Strain over ice into a tumbler and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Enjoy by the fire with a mince pie (optional)
