Chai Martini

Chai Martini (click through for the full recipe!)Last year we shared our favorite Spiced Chai recipe and this year we thought, "Why not make a cocktail version?" Plus, little known fact, Jeremy and I shared a spiked chai drink on one of our very first dates. Sigh, memories. Anyway here's another not-technically-a-martini martini. 😉Chai Martini (click through for the full recipe!) Chai Martini, serves one

  • In love! I just found My next party drink!

    Loads of love, SJay!

  • There’s a sushi and Asian fusion restaurant in Nashville on Belmont called PM. I don’t like sushi, but the pork bao is fantastic and their chai-tini is one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. You have to try one next time you’re in Nashville.

  • It’s interesting the comments that make it thru and the ones that don’t, well…anyway, it’s obvious you guys read a certain website. Im sorry for that. Ive stopped commenting there, however, I do wonder the same things…

  • Yum!

    I have a cute idea/suggestion that I utilize for my bar… for your homemade syrups, bitters, or fresh squeezed juices, you could use 500 ml san pellegrino bottles, they are the perfect size for a pouring spout and after a hot soak, the labels peel right off and you can add your own :]

  • Cute backstory, ideal looking drink!

    xo, Juliette Laura

  • that. looks. epic.

    I’m going to try making this. I hope I don’t fail dismally and make a milkshake instead.

  • I started following your blog about 6 months ago and kind of for addicted. I made it a quest of mine to stay at the beginning. Well quest complete. You guys inspire inspire me. I’ve wanted to start a lifestyle/ dig blog for along time. Though I am no where near going 100% but reading your blog has made me feel more confident in what I want to do with my blog. I just wanted to thank you guys for the inspiration. -Theora Palmer

  • oh, i love chai so so much. it’s like a little taste of christmas all the time! and of course adding alcohol to it makes it just that much better 😉

  • Godiva makes a white chocolate liqueur?! I’m about to lose it.
    This looks like a phenomenal autumn cocktail.


  • Sounds delicious! But calling these super sweet concotions “martinis” would make any mixologist cringe. I would suggest sticking with “spiked chai” as a more accurate name.

  • OMG! Can’t wait to try this! Genius ladies, pure genius! Love your cocktail recipes…please keep them coming!
