BY GWEN KENNEALLY

The days are getting a bit cooler and it is getting darker a bit earlier. After a long day working and being a single mom I have found a certain peace in meditation and yoga. What is the perfect weekend cocktail to catch my breath after a busy week on this chilly autumn night? I think it would have to be a Chai Tea grown up style! Enjoy this with some of your yogi friends! Cheers!

Chai Tea Cocktail

2 tea bags chai tea

16 ounces hot water

6 ounces milk

2 ounces bourbon

1 ounce amaretto (an almond-flavored liqueur)

1 ounce Grand Marnier (an orange-flavored liqueur)

Lemon wedge

3 whole cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

Brew tea in hot water for five minutes. Remove tea bag. In a saucepan, combine the tea mixture and milk and simmer, stirring occasionally. Pour into two coffee mugs. Add bourbon, amaretto and Grand Marnier. Stir briefly. Stud lemon wedge with the cloves and add to mixture. Place cinnamon stick in to use as a stirrer!
