This refreshing Turmeric Gin and Ginger Cocktail features turmeric, ginger beer and gin, delivering loads of health benefits in a tasty libation.
Used often in Asian and Southeast Asian cooking, turmeric is a beautiful spice that adds a vibrant orange-yellow hue to dishes. It has long served as a powerful healing herb with its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and bartenders around the country have caught on to all that turmeric can impart.
Sure, drinking alcohol inherently isn't the healthiest thing for us, but maybe by including some of our liquid gold turmeric blend as an ingredient adds a little balance. If anything, it certainly can help to make a drink look pretty, and we're definitely excited for this more 'functional' direction in cocktails.
