Photo providedThis Dutch import can, of course, be consumed straight, but the maker intends for it to be more of a cocktail ingredient. It came up with a menu of "original recipes" for cocktails rather than simply substituting this cream liqueur for another one in a previously existing recipe. Click here for a PDF of that menu.
• Voyant Chai Cream Liqueur:
A pleasant assault on the palate is one way to describe this rich 25-proof mixture. It's a combination of aged Virgin Islands rum, Dutch cream, Indian black tea, vanilla and a variety of Asian spices. Rather than coming off like a hodge-podge of flavors, however, it works smoothly -- best when served slightly chilled.
Retails for about $21.
