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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
