Chai Ball

Alcohol content: 12.64g per serve

The perfect festive serve, the Johnnie Walker Chai-Ball is inspired by east-meets-west fusion and marries these two worlds perfectly. Local English flavours like strawberries and cream or traditional rhubarb are combined with far-flung ingredients from India like warming spices and Assam tea. This holiday serve works earthiness and full-bodied flavours from the tea with a gentle hint of sweetness from the cream soda.
