Homemade Chai Tea with Pumpkin Spice Syrup and Bourbon

Miss F-Bomb’s Homemade Chai Tea with Pumpkin Spice Syrup and Bourbon is a warm cup of Fall.

Even the “easy” recipes aren’t so simple with Miss F-Bomb. Below is her fabulous recipe, but feel free to substitute with store-bought alternatives. We can’t all make our own almond milk!

Ingredients

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

Homemade Almond Milk:

  • 1 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight in cool water)
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 dates (optional) for sweetness, omit if you like unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

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, add 1 ½ oz of Bullet bourbon, 1 ½ oz pumpkin spice syrup and a splash of almond milk to taste.

Homemade Almond Milk:

  1. Add all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until creamy and smooth. You’ll want to run it for a couple of minutes for the smoothest result.
  2. Strain using a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or super thin dish rag.
  3. Transfer milk to a jar (preferably with a lid) and refrigerate.
    Shake before drinking.
