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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
