Heat the milk to 130-140˚F, and use a milk frother to make foam. Pour the Chai syrup into a teacup/mug, followed by hot milk, use a spoon to block the foam from pouring, then add Empress Indigo Gin, then top it off with the milk foam. Optionally, add Chai syrup to decorate the top. Enjoy!


*To make the syrup:

  • 1 tsp Whole Cloves
  • 1 tsp Allspice
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (or 2 tsp powder)
  • 1½ tbsp Ginger Powder
  • 1 tsp Cardamom (or powder)
  • ½ Nutmeg (or ½ tsp powder)
  • 3 tbsp Black Tea
  • 300 g Sugar
  • 100 ml Water

Toast the whole spices on medium-low heat until fragrant for a few minutes, and let it cool down. Using a coffee grinder, blend the spices and tea. In a saucepan, combine the Chai mixture with sugar and water. Stir to combine the water, and then cook the mixture on medium-low heat for 8-9 minutes unstirred, keeping it on simmer until the syrup turns golden brown. Remove from heat, pour into a sanitized jar and let it cool to thicken.
