Chai Me Up Cocktail

This cocktail comes from an evening at the Lava Lounge in Eugene Oregon many years ago. Here we were treated to this wonderful creamy rich cocktail with a base of spiced Chai tea. The Chai Me Up Cocktail is perfect after dinner or just as good on its own when the need for a bit of a sweet treat is needed. 

Chai Me Up Cocktail 

In advance prepare 2 cups of strong Chai tea and chill. 

In a shake glass filled with ice add:   

  • 1 ½ Ounces Vanilla Flavored Vodka (we like Stolichnaya Vanilla) 
  • ½ Ounce Simple Syrup 
  • ½ Ounce Amaretto 
  • ½ Ounce Half & Half 
  • 3 Ounces of Chilled Chai Tea 

Shake ingredients with vigor then shake a bit more.  Strain into a 12 ounce highball glass and dust lightly with cinnamon.
