Hi friends! It’s Tara from Suburble here. And this time, I’ve brought along a recipe for a boozy tea – my favorite chocolate chai tea and Baileys recipe.
It’s the perfect way to cap off the day. The perfect way to enjoy a delicious, warm, alcoholic beverage curled up by the fireplace with a good book or Netflix marathon.
I don’t know about you, but when winter comes and brings its shorter, wetter days, I immediately head for the kettle.
I’m a self-professed tea junkie, and I love having a good mug of tea at nearly any time of day.
So when nighttime hits, and I know that I’m housebound for the rest of the night, I make a “special” tea.
One that has a little something extra.
This winter cocktail recipe calls for more than just a glug of Baileys, but if that’s all you’ve got in the cupboard, don’t be afraid to give it a go.
But if you’d like to make a rich, velvety chai tea, with an extra bit of spice, follow the recipe below.
- 1 mug brewed chai tea, bagged or loose leaf - however you prefer
- 1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
- ½ oz Creme de Cacao
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- Brew the tea and let it steep for 3-5 minutes.
- Add the Baileys, Creme de Cacao, and stir.
- Garnish with a cinnamon stick and let it sit for a minute before serving.

The Creme de Cacao adds a hint of chocolate to the tea, and the cinnamon sticks add the spice. Trust me, this is a tea that you’ll want to savor.
And then perhaps make a second mug of this awesome Baileys recipe!
