Summer is coming early with a creamy Ginger Chai-spiced Colada. This drink is a tropical and warming blend of summer comfort. Let's get the Summer started below.
2-1/2 ounces pineapple juice
1-1/2 ounces lite coconut milk
1-1/4 ounces Ginger Chai syrup (see recipe below)
1 cup ice
Cinnamon stick for garnish
Ginger Chai Syrup
Boil filtered water and steep 2 tablespoons of Ginger Cardamom Chai tea for 5 minutes.
Allow it to cool for three minutes.
Strain into a glass bottle and stir in one cup of sugar until fully dissolved.
Will last, refrigerated, for up to a month.
Ginger Chai Colada
In a blender, pineapple juice, coconut milk, chai syrup, and ice.
Blend and pour into a glass.
Garnish with a cinnamon stick or Thyme sprig.
*For a thicker consistency, gradually add more ice, 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached. Can also be spiked by adding 2-1/2 ounces gold rum (use gold or amber rum for a richer taste vs white).
