Ginger Chai Toddy – Last Farewell to Winter

Winter is almost over!!! Chicago brightened up with one day of 60’s then went back down to the 30’s, my hope is still alive though! With this change of season, we found it best to say goodbye to winter with a ginger chai toddy. Not only because we will soon be changing to summer-y iced cocktails and fruit infused beverages, but because it also sends a nice warmth down your body to clear up any lingering cold left from winter.

Our simple recipe & what you’ll need:

  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 bags of Ginger Tea (real ginger if preferred)
  • 4 bags of Chai Tea
  • Rum (for the extra warmth :))

Steep bags of tea in about 4 cups of hot water for 5-8 minutes. {You can either boil water in the kettle and put into carafe like shown, or steep in pot on the stove after water has come to a boil.} Cut the lemon into slices and put into pot or carafe while tea is steeping (leaving a few slices for garnish). Add fresh ginger and cloves if desired. After, pour into desired glass and add 1-2oz of Rum. Stir and garnish with lemon.

Now you have a yummy drink to warm up the tummy & to get through the last days of winter.
