We’re spending a cozy night in with a tasty drink we crafted with Baileys -- a Boozy Vanilla Chai Boba Tea. It’s so delicious + fun, making it the perfect excuse for a self-indulgent night indoors.
Gather your ingredients.
Cut the vanilla bean open, scrape out the seeds. The trick is to make a single cut down the length of the bean, and then, using the flat edge of the knife, scrape out the seeds in one movement.
Scrape the seeds into a small saucepan with one cup of water.
Add 1 cup of sugar.
Next, cook your boba. Add to a pot of boiling water and cook for 5-10 minutes until the boba is soft. Remove it from the heat, cover and let cool.
Drain the boba once it has cooled.
Soak in the vanilla syrup. You can set this aside until you’re ready to serve.
Construct your Baileys vanilla chai boba tea! First, spoon your boba into your favorite glass and cover with vanilla syrup. Add ice and pour in your iced chai tea.
Slowly pour in the Baileys Irish Cream and stir. Look how it dances into the cup!
Top it off with your favorite indulgences for the ultimate garnish. We used cinnamon, shaved chocolate and some chocolate wafer straws. Be sure you have a wide straw on hand!
Get your drink and a snack set up on a tray so you don’t have to worry about leaving your couch any time soon.
We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty sure Baileys and Chill is the ultimate JOMO situation.
Be sure to settle in with your favorite book and coziest blankets, while savoring this delectable drink.
