Prep time: 0-30 mins
From The Spice & Tea Exchange®
3 TBS Emperor’s Chai Tea
2 TBS Salted Caramel Sugar (+extra for optional garnish)
From the Grocer
8 oz filtered water
2 oz caramel vodka (we used Smirnoff® Kissed Caramel)
1 oz whipped cream vodka (we used Pinnacle® Whipped)
1 oz half and half (or other milk)
HEAT filtered water to 212°F (boiling). Steep Emperor’s Chai Tea for 5 mins. Strain. Stir 2 TBS Salted Caramel Sugar into warm tea until dissolved. Set aside until cooled.
COMBINE cooled tea concentrate, vodka, and half and half in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake.
SPREAD a thin layer of caramel sauce on the rim of two martini glasses. Swirl extra on the inside of the glass if desired. Spread Salted Caramel Sugar over a small plate. Dip each glass into the sugar to coat the rim. Fill glasses.
*While delicious served as a traditional cold martini (per preparation instructions), this also makes for a great warm cocktail!
