Recipe: Wild Chai Old Fashioned

Gorgeously spicy, dangerously boozy and oh-so sophisticated, our Wild Chai Old Fashioned is a great autumnal cocktail – and goes down a storm at a dinner party.


Recipe

Ingredients

50ml Wild Vietnamese Chai Infused Bourbon 
1 tsp Sugar/1 Sugar Cube
3 dashes Orange Bitters
1 twist of orange peel


Prep

Infuse the Bourbon with the tea. We use a ratio of 1g per 100ml of bourbon and steep for 1 hour at room temperature, then strain.


Recipe

  1. Place the sugar and bitters in the glass and muddle until combined (add a dash of water if required)
  2. Add half the bourbon and some ice and stir for 15-20 secs
  3. Top with the rest of the bourbon, add additional ice and stir again
  4. Garnish with a twist of orange peel
