Zesty Orange & Turmeric Cooler
There’s always a pot of something lovely on the go when you come over to my house, and that doesn’t change with Summer. This cooling, zesty take on my Winter staple of lemon & turmeric, is a real favourite, especially served in the garden on a sunny day. Swap for lemon, lime or grapefruit if you fancy and you can always switch the cayenne for fresh chilli or leave out. If you’re new to turmeric, perhaps add half the amount and see if you like it.
If you’re making a big batch, double the recipe, prep in a tea pot or large jug and leave it in the fridge for when you need a glass of something refreshing.
*To turn into a cocktail, add a splash of gin or vodka.*
- In a large glass, mix turmeric, orange juice, honey, cayenne (if using) and add a little water and stir well.
- Pour into glasses with ice and top with sparkling water and orange slices.
