Baileys Thandai (spiced milk with Baileys)

We all are at home and it's a good time to try out a simple and good recipe. Let's plan to make a beautiful special drink - Baileys infused Thandai.

Thandai is a chilled, gorgeously Indian spiced drink made from whole milk, dry fruits, flavored with saffron, cardamom, fennel seeds, poppy seed, slight heat of peppercorns, the fragrance of roses. It is like nothing you have ever tasted before.

And it is a nutritious and cooling drink that tastes is absolutely heavenly. Traditionally thandai drink is spiked with bhang to serve on special occasions like Holi, Maha Shivaratri.

But it tastes delicious with baileys as well. My version of this creamy and flavourful Thandai spiked with Baileys Irish cream is utterly delicious. When you blend two amazing drinks together then the fusion is awesome. If you have this Thandai spice mix powder ready then this special drink you can make in no time. You need Baileys handy but it's totally optional.

Well, Baileys is an indulgent blend of cream and aged Irish whiskey and infused with vanilla pods and cocoa beans for an irresistible taste. So, enjoy a glass full of indulgence, that can be clubbed with your favorite food, nice books, Netflix movies.

We should be prepared and don’t get panic in this kind of situation. Need to think about other people's life and safety.

Plz, be at home. Pray for the doctors and nurses and all the medical practitioners with a gesture of love and respect - who are putting themselves on the front-line to bring healing and comfort to those afflicted. Social distancing is the only solution yet. Let support and fight against Covid19.

Stay healthy, stay humble! Sending lots of positive vibes, love and XxX.
