Chai Tea White Russian Mocktail With Homemade Non-alcoholic Coffee liqueur

I decided to make this Chai Tea White Russian mocktail after craving for my old-time favorite cocktail: White Russian. Back to a couple years ago, I would just go get the liquors and make a cocktail in no time. However, the more I drink tea the more I feel it is more fun to try to create tea-infused mocktails. The process is whimsical and profound.

This mocktail is combined with chai tea and homemade coffee liqueur. It is very easy to make, and you can even make it a decaf version with decaf chai and decaf instant coffee. The taste is still as wonderful!

Pink has always been one of my favorite colors. Because it carries so many characters. It can be gentle and seductive, it can be tough and hardcore. I love to have fun with this color, especially in this cold weather, it’s just simply pleasant and cheerful.
