The Chicago Honey Chai’tini
One of my newest recipes that I have put together contains an American based Bourbon called Slate. This blended bourbon, which is distilled in Chicago, is now a very rare bottle of spirit, as it no longer is distributed in South Africa. I managed to saver this bottle for the past 3 years and have finally decided to put it to good use.
This whiskey has a very smooth texture with rich hints of vanilla, honeycomb and roasted cafe latte, 3 flavours I wanted to complement a brew of organic chai tea.
The recipe is as follows;
- 50ml Slate Bourbon
- 12.5ml Sweet Vermouth
- Tbsp Honey
- 25ml Lemon juice
- Grated orange zest
- 50ml Chai tea (serve from tea pot brew containing 2 tea bags)
Shake and fine strain all ingredients. Serve chilled in a martini glass with a Orange zest and a sprinkle of coffee granuals.
