used this recipe to make Chai vodka:

I have about 1/5 of a “fifth,” so I just put one heaping teaspoon in it last night. It will probably “steep” for 24 to 36 hours instead of the recommended 10 because a) I’m lazy and b) I can’t decide what other container to strain it into once it’s done. I also haven’t decided how or when I will drink it… probably just a vodka “martini” with Bailey’s like this http://cocktails.lovetoknow.com/Baileys_Vodka_Martini

Is it wrong to blend Indian chai with Irish creme? I think I’ll call it a “George Thomas,” after this wacky dude I just learned about via the magic of the internets: http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Most-Famous-Irishman-in-India,-George-Thomas&id=1650863

I need to make a variety of tea vodkas (and mulberry cordial – my mulberry tree is going NUTS!). I think perhaps sunday!! Thanks for the inspiration!

Janefan

Mulberry cordial – cool!

I am sadly now considering buying more vodka just so I can make green tea vodka (the fifth I just chai’d has been around for a couple years, that’s how infrequently I drink the hard stuff!)

I know – if it wasn’t for all my concoctions (vanilla extract made with rum, limoncello made with vodka, mulberry cordial with vodka) the hard stuff would sit for guests :) I don’t make anything with gin, and we’ve had the same bottle of gin for almost a decade!!!

Janefan

I think it brewed for about 42 hours before I finally strained out the tea. I have about 4oz total. Hoping to try half of it with Bailey’s tonight…
