Need to level up your chai this fall? This spirited sherry cocktail from Amanda Britton of Charlotte’s Lincoln Street Kitchen and Cocktails and the Green Room combines nutty flavors with sweet, spicy chai tea and smoked cinnamon to create the perfect autumnal blend. Britton says, “Playing with chai spices, which are found in many tiki cocktails, melds so well with all ingredients and really sends home a fall vibe.”
