Chai-tini

Day 217



Chai-tini
4 shots out of 5


I'm quite honestly not sure if this day will ever end.  It's been "National Drive All Over The Place Day" today for me.  I'm exhausted and ready for this cocktail I have here.  Then I'll eat dinner.  Maybe.  Raviolis......yes I'll definitely eat dinner.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I got tonight's cocktail from Petit Chef.  There is a pretty good blend of ingredients in this cocktail I must say.  The only thing I think I would change is the Chai to Baileys & Kahlua ratio.  I would definitely lessen the Kahlua to 1 oz.  The Baileys could either stay the same or lessen to 3/4 oz.  I think the amount of Kahlua gives it too much of a bite and takes away the chai flavor and you know how much I love this Voyant Chai liqueur, so I think I just want to taste more of it......especially since it's called a Chai-tini.  Either way, it's a good cocktail.

Only 2 days left for my Vinturi Spirit Aerator Giveaway!!  Enter today for your chance to win!!

Here is the recipe for a Chai-tini:

  • 2 oz Voyant Chai
  • 2 oz Baileys
  • 2 oz Kahlua
  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1/4 oz milk (whenever a cocktail asks for a "splash" of anything, I put in 1/4 oz.  I actually measured my "splash" once and that's what it was, so I stick with it)
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake it up well and strain it into a frosted martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Don't forget, if you can't get Voyant Chai in your state, you can always order it online at either www.drinkupny.com or www.astorwine.com.  Here's to this Wednesday ending......soon I hope!

Cheers!!

  1. Since I still can't drive because of my broken foot, I can't replenish my liquor supply easily, but I do have the ingredients for this one! I'm going to try this tonight. It looks like one of those dessert cocktails so it may be an after dinner drink :)

  2. Had to wait until tonight to make this since I was out of regular vodka and only had citrus vodka - didn't think that would taste very good in this :) A friend brought me vodka today. Anyway, I took your advice and only used one Kahlua - good advice. The chai flavor came through, though I might cut the Bailey's down to one, too, to emphasize the chai next time. It is definitely a dessert drink and a good one. I think I'd give it 4 shots.
