Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

I have a weakness for Chai. Especially the Iced Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks. It was an expensive weakness, until I discovered how to make them on my own. TAZO Chai Black Tea Latte from concentrate is the secret ingredient.

TAZO sells several varieties of the Chai Latte mix. I pick mine up at Target. They always seem to have a good deal at 2 boxes for $6. This is the exact same Chai mix that Starbucks uses. And they charge at least $4-5 per drink! Well, you can get 8 drinks out of one box of the TAZO Chai. That’s a savings of around $28 per carton if you do it yourself! That’s a decent chunk of change. And they’re simple to make too. If you use 2% or Skim milk, they’re really not that bad for you either!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup TAZO Chai Latte Mix
1/2 cup milk (2% or skim)
Ice cubes
Whipped cream (optional)

Instructions:
Pour the TAZO Chai and the milk over ice in your favorite cup. Top with whipped cream (not necessary, but fun on occasion.) Stir with a straw and enjoy! If you prefer a larger up of Chai, just use a 1:1 ratio on the Chai mix and milk.

Concord Grape Swizzle

I invented a new drink last night. I’m calling it the “Concord Grape Swizzle”. I think it has a fun little ring to it. My husband picked up a bottle of Swedish Hill Concord Grape wine for us to enjoy. We love our New York State wines, especially the nice sweet wines.

As I was sipping the wine, I thought, I wonder what it might be like if I added some bubbly ginger ale and a slice of lime? Both of which I just happened to have in the fridge. The result was a yummy, new favorite drink!

Instructions:
1. Fill a glass 1/3 full of Swedish Hill Concord Grape Wine (Use grape juice as a nice non-alcoholic substitute.)
2. Fill another 1/3 of the glass with your favorite Ginger Ale.
3. Add ice and a slice of lime. (I threw a few cranberries in too, just because.)
4. Drink and enjoy.

Cheers!
