Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Wedges. Carrot Orange Ginger Juice. Thursday January 27th, 2011 in Home Cooking It all started with Jack Lalanne.

I was in a hotel room, flipping through the channels while waiting for Mr. B and I landed on the always-running informercial for a Jack Lalanne juicer. My thumb paused over the remote as I watched Jack push an entire section of pineapple through the juicer in seconds flat. My stomach growled. A few months later, the infomercial gone but not forgotten, we stumbled upon a funky juice shack in Austin, Texas.

It never occurred to me to make my own chai. (Certainly it must be too hard.) Here are the ingredients you’ll need: cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, star anise, cloves, black pepper, nutmeg, orange zest, tea bags, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. Start by bringing 4 1/2 cups water to the boil on the stove. Then you need some orange zest. The recipe says to use a piece of ginger. Once the water has come to a boil, remove the pot from the heat and add the tea bags. Then add your cinnamon sticks (we only add two—it just looks like we’re using four because we broke them in half).

Then add your star anise and seven cardamom pods. Now you are left with delicious, homemade chai concentrate. Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters.
