I love a good chai. There is something about the smooth, creamy, spicy, earthy goodness that soothes my soul. I've had many different varieties and brands in my 37 (sigh) years, but I most recently tried Zhena's Coconut Chai. I mean really, chai and coconut? Two of my favorite things brought together! Why didn't I think of that myself??
Since I've been experimenting with tea-tinis, I thought why not try it with this tea. But unfortunately, it didn't pack the spicy punch I was after. The first chai-tea-tini was a bit flat. So, I went back to the Maharani simple syrup I posted about back in February. That cocktail took a different spin, using rum and fresh lime juice. This one uses that same simple syrup, but the end result is utterly different. If you like creamy desserts and after-dinner cocktails that taste like dessert, this one's for you!
