Chai Tea with Bourbon Cream

Miss F-Bomb is, perhaps, the craftiest of the mixologists in the group. And generally, at least at rehearsals, she is the one pouring (and over-pouring) and making the drinks. She truly has a gift, so keep an eye on her recipes. She is also one of those annoying people who makes everything from scratch, so feel free to get plain old store-bought chai tea and whipped cream and just add bourbon in your Chai Tea with Bourbon Cream.


Chai Tea:

  • 3 cups of hot water
  • 4 bags of black tea
  • 4 crushed cardamom pods, green
  • 4 crushed whole allspice berries
  • 3 or 4 whole cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ¼-½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (or homemade bourbon vanilla extract…since Miss F-Bomb is literally the bomb!)
  • 3 cups of vanilla almond milk (Miss F-Bomb makes her own!)
  • ¼ cup honey or raw honey…could also substitute agave

Bourbon Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp white sugar (or raw sugar)
  • 1 ½ tbsp premium bourbon (Miss F-Bomb likes Bulleit Bourbon)
Chai Tea with Bourbon Cream


Chai Tea:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, tea bags, spices, and vanilla.
  2. Bring everything to a boil over medium to medium/high heat and then reduce to a simmer.
  3. Stir in the almond milk and honey and whisk to combine.
  4. Remove from heat and allow it to sit and steep for 10 minutes. For a stronger flavor, cover and let sit to steep.
  5. Strain through a fine sieve or cheesecloth (or both) to remove the tea bags and spices.
  6. Strain a second time if needed until only liquid remains.
  7. Pour into a mug and top with bourbon cream.

Bourbon Cream:

  1. In a chilled glass or metal bowl, whip cream until soft mounds begin to form.
  2. Gradually add the sugar and continue to whisk/whip until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently, very gently, fold in the bourbon being careful not to over mix.
  4. Chill until ready to serve.

Miss F-Bomb, “The Hottest Weapon in the Burlesque Arsenal”, is smooth like Southern Bourbon, spiked with a tart calamansi. Don’t underestimate her feminine wiles for she is a firecracker within. With her sardonic smile and legs for miles she will make your heart (and other things) go BOOM! Miss F-Bomb has an extensive dance and theater background and is the lead choreographer, kitten wrangler, prop mistress, and PR rep for Cabaret & Cocktails.
