Recipe: Chicory Root Tea Martini with Vanilla Honey

2 minute read

We've got a few coffee substitutes on our website that smell like coffee, look like coffee, and taste like coffee, but it's not. We have two chicory root blends: one that's strictly chicory root called Not Coffee Vol. 3. But the other is a blend of chicory and licorice roots, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon called Not Coffee Vol. 2. Chicory root is full of inulin, a prebiotic fiber that your gut loves. Good gut health leads to good brain health. But that's not what this recipe is all about.

Our favorite bartender, El Boozy Vegan, whipped up this "Not Coffee" martini using cashew milk and our vanilla flavored honey, Crime. Oh yeah...we are coming in HOT.
