Nothing says “warming winter flavors” like the taste of classic chai spices. Cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and cloves meet golden Assam tea and a touch of cream for a latte-like beverage that pairs perfectly with a healthy splash of brandy. For good measure, try preparing this chai hot toddy with one of the new spate of American brandies hitting the market—these bottlings will add a unique dimension to your drink, in addition to being great in a snifter on their own.


3 ounces brandy
4 ounces steeped black tea, preferably Golden Tip Assam Black Tea
Chai spices (per serving, 3 crushed cardamom pods or ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder, 1 slice fresh ginger, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 cloves)
1 ounce heavy cream


Combine brandy with hot, steeped tea. Add the chai spices and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Strain the liquid, reserving cinnamon stick for garnish. Add the heavy cream, stir and serve.
