Cinnamon, cloves, coriander, fennel seeds, ginger, green cardamon, nutmeg, peppercorn and star anise (oh my!) are just a few of the warming spices brewed to make a traditional chai. Fortunately, we live in an age of convenience where delicious ready-made chai mixes are available at major supermarkets. Pick one up for this sweet and spicy dessert cocktail so you can spend the extra hours on the perfect Purim costume.

- 1/8 cup half-and-half
