Turmeric Shrub

This cocktail works double duty with inflammation-reducing turmeric and weekend-inducing vodka or gin. After a short work week, we've been working extra hard to get the job done and this drink will help ease us back into a routine weekend.

We also love any opportunity to bring out this rich Mango Pulp Vinegar, which we found in the open air markets of southern France. Using fresh mango and extra strong spirit vinegar, it develops a more viscous texture and bold fruity flavor. We'll be using the rest of the bottle as a marinade for fish this weekend.

After a long week, we want to give our bodies a break without sacrificing flavor, of course. So this Friday we're shaking up a mocktail, but this recipe could absolutely be adapted into a delicious cocktail as well.

ingredients


2 T Jansal Valley® Ginger Infused Honey

¼ C Water

1 t Jansal Valley® Whole Black Peppercorns / crushed

½ C Vodka or Gin (optional)

Soda Water / as needed

Ice / as needed

 

method


In a small sauce pan, combine the ginger honey, water, and peppercorns. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove from the heat. Stir to dissolve the honey, and strain the mixture into a heat-safe container. Allow the mixture to cool completely. 

Once the mixture has cooled, add the syrup to a pitcher, and fill the pitcher with ice. Top off the pitcher with sparkling water, and serve.
