this is my LAST blog post of 2015! it has been quite a year since starting modest marce.. buttttt instead of getting all sentimental, i'm gonna leave you with this chai cocktail. it is a twist on a classic white russian, perfect for those new year's festivities. i came up with this drink after connecting with amy, the maker of dona chai. she is based in brooklyn, new york & creates this delicious chai concentrate in small batches. i thought it would make the perfect base for a fun new years cocktail. HAPPY NEW YEAR! see you in 2016.


makes one drink

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 2 oz chai tea concentrate (i used dona chai)
  • 2 oz heavy cream or half & half
  • 1 cinnamon stick, garnish


  • in an ice filled glass add vodka, chai tea & cream. stir well & garnish with a cinnamon stick.

NOTE: you can use store bought chai concentrate or make your own! to make your own brew some very strong chai tea & sweeten it with cane sugar.
