Serving a well-made hot cocktail at a busy bar can be a real challenge. But at Hotel Griffou in New York City, co-owner and beverage director Johnny Swet cleverly treats this winter weather cocktail as if it were a cappuccino — steaming it to make it hot. This smooth, spiked take on chai tea will make you cozy up to the fire and not want to leave, save to fix a second round.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a tin, then steam.
Serve in a coffee mug and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
