  • .75 oz chai tea syrup (see Step 1)
  • Angostura® bitters
  • Grated nutmeg

  1. CHAI TEA SYRUP (Make ahead of time so it has time to cool before adding it to the cocktail): Bring water to a boil, then add 1 chai tea bag for each cup of water. Allow tea to steep for about 5 minutes, then remove bags. Heat water to boiling again, then add an equal amount of sugar and stir until the sugar completely dissolves. Keep syrup in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  2. Combine whiskey, vermouth, lemon juice, syrup, and bitters in a Barfly® shaker with ice and shake until well chilled. Strain over fresh ice, then grate fresh nutmeg over the top and garnish with a lemon peel.
