Brown Sugar-Chai Simple Syrup Water Dark brown sugar Chai tea bag Chai Old Fashioned Brown sugar-chai simple syrup Orange bitters Large ice cube Bourbon
Make the chai simple syrup by bringing water and brown sugar to a boil. Turn off heat once the brown sugar dissolves and add tea bag. Steep for at least five minutes. Remove tea bag and chill.
In an old fashioned glass, add the brown sugar-chai simple syrup and orange bitters. Stir to combine.
Add the ice cube and bourbon and stir to chill. This also helps the ice cube start to slowly melt into the drink.
Twist the orange peel over the old fashioned glass to release the oil and add to glass. If desired, garnish with a cherry and cinnamon stick. Enjoy!
When you need a comforting, warming bourbon cocktail, you'll love every delicious sip of this chai old fashioned. It's your perfect fall cocktail.
I love a good, classic Old Fashioned, but I might like this chai flavored version even more. I made these for friends last night and everyone agreed that they are dangerously good.
