Easy Chai Tea White Russian Cocktail

I love this time of year.

Slowing down a bit and just enjoying this season is what I am looking forward to most these last weeks of the year.

So this weekend, while I am curling up with Brené Browns’ latest book, I will treat myself to some festive, fun cocktails.

This easy Chai Tea White Russian cocktail recipe is perfect!

I love the flavor that the cinnamon and anise give this cocktail.

You could also sub vanilla coffee creamer for the half and half, which gives a slightly sweeter taste- great if you like to drink your coffee with flavored creamer.
