Trinidad Thai Tea

Trini-DAD Thai Tea (1)1 oz Scorpion Pepper Vodka
1 oz Coconut Milk or Half & Half
2 oz Iced Thai Tea or Chai Tea Concentrate
¾ oz Simple Syrup

Happy Father’s Day! Celebrate with a nice Trini-DAD Thai Tea! Begin by adding all ingredients to a clean mixing glass, add ice and stir gently. Strain over fresh ice into an old fashioned glass.

I’d like to give James Jaggard credit for creating this cocktail. James is a good friend of ours and a new Father this year! Thanks James — it’s a hit!

A great way to surprise Dad — plenty of spice but with some sweetness to cut the heat. I often recommend adding chai tea as a cocktail mixer ingredient, as it’s a great way to experiment with spice — and there are so many different varieties! Oregon Chai Tea is my go-to brand but Thai Tea is another that can add depth and sweetness. This is one cocktail where the flavor complexity comes from the ingredients more than the build. It’s very simple to make, and perfect for those hot summer afternoons.

2 oz C.W. Irwin Bourbon
2 oz Chai Tea Concentrate
1 Bar Spoon Honey

Begin by warming the chai tea, either in a pan or with an electric kettle. The chai portion can be very hot, as this is the only component which will be heated. Now add a bar spoon of honey to coffee mug. Add C.W. Irwin Bourbon and hot chai tea. Stir until honey is well mixed. Finish with a few drops of Wild Card Absinthe and garnish with orange wheel.
