Boozes: Chai Cream Liquor

The other day I showed you how to make home made Irish Cream Liquor.  This is a variation on that recipe that gives you the yummy spice of chai.  If you like eggnog, you would probably love this.  Although I love this but I'm not a fan of eggnog.  You can make nicer labels than this and give it as a gift or drink it all yourself.

I just made a half batch but that left me with half a can of condensed milk, so here's what you need to make 750mL and you can do the math if you want to halve it.

1 cup 18% table cream
1 300mL can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Canadian whisky
3 chai tea bags
1/2 cup water 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

Heat 1/2 cup of cream in a small saucepan along with the teabags, water and spices.  Bring to a gentle boil and whisk spices to dissolve. Boil 5 minutes.

Remove the teabags and pour the mixture into a bowl or large measuring cup.  Add the sweetened condensed milk, whisky and remaining cream and whisk together.  

Pour into a large jar or bottle with a tight fitting lid.  This will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks and is great over ice or in coffee.
