Following are Klean Kanteen’s winter warmer recipes for The Perfect Dirty Hippy and Hot Mulled Cider to help you and your clients/members beat the winter blues.

Recipe 1. The Perfect Dirty Hippy

Makes: 4 cups


  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk of your choice
  • 2 crushed peppercorns
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 smashed green cardamom pods
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 tbs organic cane sugar or agave
  • ½ a thumb of fresh ginger
  • 2 tbs loose black tea leaves (Assam, Darjeeling or Ceylon)
  • 4 shots of espresso of your choice


Step 1 – Make the masala chai

Heat water and milk over medium heat in a sauce pan until small bubbles appear around the rim of the milk. Add tea, sugar and all the spices. Stir frequently and make sure the spoon contacts the bottom of the pot to prevent scalding the milk. When the milk begins to boil, back off the heat until it has stopped. Continue to stir frequently. Bring up to a boil once more and back off again while stirring. Strain out into your favourite insulated Klean Kanteen.

Step 2 – Make the espresso

Brew the espresso in whatever espresso/coffee making device you have on hand. If you don’t have an espresso machine, brew the strongest coffee you possibly can and substitute that.

Step 3 – Combine masala chai and espresso

Pour one shot of espresso into every cup of chai that you make.

Step 4 – Enjoy, using your Klean Coat bottle to keep it hot for up to 8 hours!
