Short Build but a Long Finish.

It only takes three ingredients and two steps to make one classy cocktail. And truth be told, you’re likely to spend more time on the garnish than the drink itself. But after that first sip, no one will know, or care.


1 oz. Chai Vodka
1 oz. Simple syrup
4 oz. Sweet red wine (e.g. Burgundy or Chianti)


  1. Build all ingredients over ice in a red wine glass.
  2. Garnish with half an orange wheel, studded with cloves.
