Tea & Sympathy

Tea & Sympathy hot cocktail with chai tea, cachaça, ginger liqueur, and lemon juice

The Tea & Sympathy (named for the play, or perhaps the song) is a spirit-warming hot cocktail from Andrew Kalini at New York’s Highlands, featuring spiced chai tea, ginger liqueur, and the sweet funkiness of cachaça, all tied together with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Ingredients

Instructions

Fill a mug halfway with near-boiling water, and steep the chai tea for 30 seconds. Remove the tea bag (or scoop out the loose tea), add the remaining ingredients, and add more hot water as desired. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a twist or wheel of lemon, studded with cloves.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
