The Boozy Coffee & Chai Lovechild of 2024.

Are you a chai lover whilst also being loyal to the liquid gold that is coffee?  Do you fancy a lil’ cocktail every once in a while? We don’t mind dabbling ourselves, especially when something as delish as this concoction is in our hands!

“Dirty Chai-tini”; a cocktail which combines the kick of espresso with the spice of fresh chai. This libation is sure to get your heart pumping and will be a hit for your next summer soiree!


Ingredients:  (Serves 1)

Chai Syrup Method:

  1. Scoop a large spoonful of chai (we used Dandi Chai) into a heat-proof vessel.
  2. Add ½ cup of boiling water. Swirl to incorporate and let sit for 3 min. (if you want a little bit more sweetness, you can add a dash of honey (try our Hiranya Honey), maple syrup, rice malt syrup, etc)
  3. Strain and place into the fridge for future use.


  1. Add all ingredients to Boston Shaker with ice.
  2. Shake for 30 seconds or until the tin has frosted.
  3. Pour cocktail into a pre-chilled martini glass.
  4. Garnish with the coffee beans and star anise.
  5. Serve & enjoy.

And that’s it!  We loved this cocktail SO much that we are absolutely confident that you will too. The Dandi Chai (with its nutty and coffee-like resemblance) was the perfect chai for this bangin’ cocktail.

If you are after some more yummy coffee inspired cocktails, check out our Coconut Chai Iced Coffee, which is similar to this cocktail but more frosty, and with the creaminess of coconut milk!  Perfect for a hot summer day 🙂

Hope you enjoy and please share if you decide to indulge yourself!
