This spicy, strong masala chai vodka makes an exceptional base for creamy cocktails. It's also delicious on its own or with a bit of simple syrup.

What You'll Need

  • 750 milliliters (a.k.a. "a fifth") neutral-tasting vodka
  • 5 level tablespoons masala chai made with CTC tea
  • Simple syrup (optional, to taste)

How to Make It

  1. Using a funnel, guide the chai into the bottle of vodka. If necessary, lightly crush the spices first or use a chopstick to fit them through the funnel and into the bottle.
  2. Replace the cap of the bottle and shake well.
  3. Steep for about 10 hours, or to taste.
  4. Pour the mixture through a strainer and funnel into a different bottle. (If you plan to add simple syrup, use a larger bottle.)
  5. Discard the chai. Add simple syrup to the remaining solution if desired.
  1. Serve straight, on the rocks or as a base for more complex cocktails.
