Modest Vodka Chai Martini Recipe

Cheers recently added Modest Vodka to our selection. Distilled and cut in a 90 gallon German-built pot still in Madison Wisconsin, Modest is a 100% corn vodka that is filtered and brought down to proof with reverse osmosis water. Cheers found Modest to be smooth and clean, perfect for sipping or mixing. Recently Cheers featured Modest Vodka at a store tasting.  Our Modest rep whipped up a Chai tea martini and it was a hit!.   

We got lots of requests for the recipe so here it is!  The Modest Vodka  and the Imbue bittersweet vermouth is available at both  Cheers locations. You’ll have to make the Chai syrup*. Don’t worry it’s really easy, but we suggest you do this step first and in order to give the syrup time to cool.  







2 cups sugar

3 cups water

One bag of Chai tea

Modest Vodka

Imbue bittersweet vermouth




*Chai Syrup:

1) In a medium sauce pan, simmer (not boil) 2 cups sugar and 3 cups water.

2) Stir until sugar is dissolved completely then remove from heat

3) Add one bag of your favorite chai tea and let steep for 7-10min. Remove tea and let cool.


For the Martini:

2 oz modest vodka

1 oz imbue bittersweet vermouth

.5oz chai simple syrup

Stir over ice for 5-10 seconds and strain into martini glass or build in lowball glass and add ice and allow to dilute slightly.
