Chai Espresso Martini

This has been the year of espresso martinis, so we decided to add a little twist to this classic cocktail.

This year, we searched for the perfect holiday cocktail to keep us energized through travel, gift wrapping, and everything in between, and we couldn’t help but turn to the ever popular espresso martini. But what’s a holiday cocktail without a seasonal twist? Cue masala chai. Warm aromatics with a perfect blend of spices add a bit of extra richness to this classic drink.

Whether you’re serving guests or enjoying as a night cap, this cozy cocktail will be the cherry on top to your holiday season.
