Total Time: 15 min.

Servings: 1


2 two-inch pieces of fresh ginger, peeled

2 two-inch pieces of turmeric, peeled*

1 lemon

4 tbsp agave syrup

sparkling water

cayenne pepper

1 oz tequila (optional)

*If you have no fresh ginger or turmeric on hand, you can also substitute using powdered spices. Mix 1 tbs of each to start and add lemon juice, and a small amount of water until you dissolve all the spices.


Tonic Directions:

1. Place ginger, turmeric and lemons into a juicer and allow to strain into a glass jar.

2. Stir in agave.

3. Store in a clean airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Cocktail Directions:

1. Add 1 – 2 oz of turmeric ginger juice into a tall glass filled with ice.

2. Add sparkling water and sprinkle a small pinch of cayenne on top. For a weekend happy hour spritz, try adding 1 oz of tequila or vodka to turn it into a health-forward cocktail.

Tips: If you do not have a juicer, you can place ginger and turmeric into a blender with a small amount of water and juice of both lemons. Blitz until smooth and strain into a glass container through a mesh sieve and add agave.
