It’s a hot and sunny summer here in beautiful Ontario, Canada! That said, i’m guessing it’s hot where you are too!
Today I’m sharing a simple + flavourful iced tea recipe that also doubles as a cocktail. I know, you love this idea! You’re welcome.
Bonus Points for you! If you have your little nieces coming over for a visit, you can make this iced tea for them (without alcohol obvi) and they’ll feel all fancy & grown-up. It’ll be so special and you’ll be their hero!
This recipe is for one bevie, but you can easily double it as required to make a pitcher and keep the iced tea in your fridge.
Vanilla Spiced Tea 6 oz organic rooibos chai tea 1/2-1 oz coconut milk or cream 1/2 teaspoon Madagascar Vanilla ice cubes Ceylon Cinnamon sticks for garnish
Want to make it a cocktail?
It`s ok, I know you do!
Alcohol add-ins for adults;
RumChata Vanilla Vodka
Brew 1- 1.5 teaspoons of Rooibos Chai as per instructions and allow to cool in the refrigerator.
Once cooled, add tea, coconut milk, and vanilla into a shaker and shake, shake, shake to blend the ingredients and create a wonderful froth. The heavier the cream content of the milk you choose will also determine the amount of froth. Less fat, less froth.
If you’re making this as a cocktail, add your rum and vodka to the shaker along with the tea, and milk. You don’t need to add the vanilla. Shake until frothy and serve over a tall glass filled with lots of ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
