Rise & Shine

Rise & Shine

Who says brunch cocktails are limited to mimosas?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are so many ingredients than lend themselves wonderfully to early day sipping. Turmeric has been gaining a foothold in the cocktail world for a few years. The health benefits of turmeric are well known. It contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Why not drink something healthy(ish) with your weekend celebrations?

I grated/zested the turmeric directly into the cocktail to ensure the health benefits are intact. Adding fresh orange zest, honey, lemon juice and ghost pepper for a kick! It’s a bright and light cocktail that will start your weekend off right!⠀⠀⠀⠀

Rise & Shine

  • .5 teaspoon micro grated turmeric
  • .5 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 oz Titos Vodka
  • 1 oz Heritage Distilling ghost pepper vodka
  • .5 oz raw honey syrup
  • .5 oz fresh lemon juice

Shake over ice for 45 seconds and pour into Collins glass with ice. Do not strain out the zest. Top with sparkling water if you want bubbles.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Whether you are approaching brunch with a “hair-of-the-dog” mindset from a long night of fun or a “relaxing-with-friends”mindset this healthy-ish turmeric based cocktail is a perfect addition. .

 turmeric is related to ginger and grown primarily in Asia and India. It's what gives curry it's yellow color.
