Tea Recipe: Apple Chai Manhattan

It is one of the quintessential cocktails, named after the borough that invented it – and now it is given an elegant, tea-infused twist, perfect for winter!

I present to you my latest and greatest, the Apple Chai Manhattan.

Tea Recipe to Make Apple Chai Manhattan

  • 2 oz chai-infused whiskey (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
  • 2-3 dashes apple bitters 
  • 1 maraschino cherry (soaked overnight in Kama Chai Sutra)


Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes, stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the chai-soaked cherry.

Chai-Infused Whiskey

  • 2 tbsp Kama Chai Sutra
  • 750 mL bourbon (try to use one high in rye content)


Add the tea leaves directly into full bottle, replace cap and shake vigorously to thoroughly combine. Allow to steep for overnight, shaking every few hours for full incorporation, and finally strain.
