Chai Tea Spritzer

Chai Chai Chai Chai CHAI TEA SPRITZER. Can you even handle it? How cute are these drinks? So sweet and festive. It’s the greatest little drink to make instead of the usual Martinellis. These guys are perfect for the whole family and so comforting. Not all Christmas drinks need to be hot because these refreshers are just perfect.

I’ve made this drink so many times because …

  1. I’m obsessed with Chai sugar right now
  2. I can totally make this low carb
  3. A cool version of a hot drink, yes!
  4. Comforting and yummy

Also, they can be dolled up with pomegranate seeds and pear slices for a cute little festive look. I’m all about the presentation right now. The holidays are all about more-more-more when it comes to food. More butter, more sparkle, more Amy Grant.

This drink has the perfect amount of steps. Mix together the chai sugar, brew the tea, add sugar to tea, chill and then add ginger ale. Don’t forget to rim these cute little glasses.

Let’s take a second to talk about these glasses. At Target, in the front dollar section, and for 3 dollars a pair! Run, don’t walk and buy them. Even these cute little Christmas tree drink stirrers are from that section too! It’s hard to not have a cute Christmas when there is Target.

This beverage is just what is needed to make your festivities complete. It brings such a perfect touch to any dinner or get together. Give it a whirl and tell me what you think!

    Nothing better than a holiday cocktail! Maybe it’s the stress or just a case of the Mondays, but I’m feeling tempted to try a test run of these this afternoon! 😉
