It’s no secret that we love a good cocktail around here just as much as we love self care. Most of the time those things seem mutually exclusive (although I am a firm believer in a glass of wine in the bathtub), but what would happen if you mixed the two? Maybe like adding turmeric to a cocktail – why not?!
Turmeric is absolutely, hands down one of my favorite go-to spices. It warms me up, helps fight off colds, packs an amazing flavor punch, and just about cures all ails – it is my personal magic bullet. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered Von Humboldt’s turmeric liqueur.
On its own, turmeric can have an intense, bitter flavor, but in this liqueur it’s been distilled down with coriander seed, rose petal, and lemon zest to sweeten things up a bit. It is a delicious earthy modifier that holds her own in a cocktail or enjoyed as a digestif after a meal.
- 2 oz Von Humboldt's turmeric liqueur
- 1 oz fresh lemon
- ½ oz honey syrup
- 3-4 slices of cucumber
- Gin or vodka (dealer's choice)
- Muddle cucumber in bottom of shaker, add all liquid ingredients and shake with ice.
- Strain into a coupe glass and float a cucumber on top as garnish.
- Serve, sip, repeat!
