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!⠀⠀⠀⠀
