Hot Chai Tea Toddy

Ready for the snow? Here in New York City it’s about to come down. Stay in tonight. Or even tomorrow night. I’d say warm up by a cozy Fireplace, but most of us here in the city defenitely don’t own one. So. Curl up on your sofa, watch a good movie, and watch the snow come down through your window while having a Hot Toddy. A Hot Chai Tea Toddy of course. It’s such a delicious twist on the Toddy, it’s going to warm you up inside out!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Hendrick’s Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
  • 2 oz apple juice
  • 1 cup chai tea
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • honey
  • cinnamon sticks

Warm the apple juice, one cinnamon stick and honey in a pan. Brew a cup of chai tea. Add gin, chai tea and apple juice mix into a mug or tea glass. Stir with the cinnamon stick and enjoy. (I’ll leave the amount of honey needed up to you, depending on how sweet you like it. Personally I used 1 tbsp per tea!)

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
