Inspire your holiday menu with these five chai recipes.
The changing colors and cool, crisp air call for all things fall and the start of the holiday season. The warming spices of chai – cinnamon, clove, cardamom and ginger – are perfect to pair with holiday baking, hot drinks, mocktails and more. We’ve put together the five best chai recipes for the holidays.
1. Chai Nog
Celebrate the holidays with egg nog – with a twist! You can serve chai nog hot or cold. Simply combine egg nog with equal parts Oregon Chai The Original™ Chai Tea Latte Concentrate for the perfect cup of chai nog or change up the flavor with our Salted Caramel Concentrate.
Cozy up in front of the fireplace and enjoy the warming taste of chai and tonic with our Fireside Tonic recipe. You’ll love the combination of warming spices and refreshing mint and lime.
The sweet and tart flavors of cranberry combined with chai creates a delicious cocktail for any holiday party. Add an adult twist with rum and triple sec. Garnish the drink with cinnamon sticks, orange slices or real cranberries for a festive finish.
Nothing says the holidays like a tasty pie. Elevate the flavor of traditional pumpkin pie by adding a bit of chai. Our powdered mix can be easily added to your own recipe or you can follow our simple chai pumpkin pie recipe.
5. Baked Ham
Add a bit of chai-inspired flavor to your holiday ham with our baked ham recipe. Pour Original Chai concentrate directly over ham and baste frequently, adding more Original Chai concentrate as needed.
