Lychee Teapot – Roti Chai

A celebratory cocktail based on the London restaurant Roti Chai’s masala chai recipe that is a nod to the days of the Raj and her Majesty’s former colony.


75ml vodka
200ml lychee juice
Cinnamon stick
Green cardamom pods
Pink peppers
1 tsp Assam tea
Dash of King’s ginger liqueur or ginger syrup


Blend a combination of the cinnamon, green cardamom pods, cloves, nutmeg, pink peppercorns and Assam tea to taste. Add to vodka, shake well and steep overnight for 12-18 hours.
Strain the vodka then add lychee juice before pouring into a teapot over ice. Add a dash of King’s ginger liqueur or ginger syrup and serve.
