Who says cocktails are a warm-weather drink? We love whipping up a Winter-inspired drink as the colder weather rolls in! This delicious Vanilla Chai Old Fashioned is great for serving at dinner parties, or for relaxing on a Friday night. Perfect for making in bulk, you can easily mix it ahead of time to whip up a quick drink in a moments notice.

Ingredients:

- 4 Chai tea bags

- 1 oz Chai tea syrup

- 1/3 cup of maple syrup

- 1 cinnamon and star anise

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1 bottle of sparkling water

- 1 dash of bitters, orange

- 2 oz of bourbon

- 1 oz of lemon juice

Instructions:

Chai Syrup: In a pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add in the chai tea bags. Cover, and steep for 10-15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and add in the maple syrup. Bring this to a boil over high heat for 3-5 minutes, then remove. Stir in the vanilla, and let it cool. This can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Old Fashioned: Using a cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, lemon juice, orange bitters, and 2 tablespoons of the chai syrup. Shake!

Strain into a glass. Add sparkling water to taste, then garnish with cinnamon and star anise.
