My sister has suggested that we pick a cocktail for our family gathering this Christmas. After a too long summer, it's finally cold enough in New England to start thinking about warm drinks. My initial thought was something along the lines of Irish Coffee but my wife suggested this chai toddy as a nice way to offer an appealing non-alcoholic alternative for the kids.
My recipe - combining chai with brandy, dark rum, heavy cream and sugar - came from Making, a knitting magazine. The drink is certainly pleasant and it made me quite sleepy. We might also try out a hot chocolate possibility.
