Kuma-quat – A Turmeric + Tamarind Cocktail

This post is part of a partnership with Kuma Turmeric Liqueur. Read more about this amazing liqueur here!

When I first tried a sip of Kuma Turmeric Liqueur, I was immediately impressed. Unlike many liqueurs, it can easily be enjoyed straight. In addition to the pure, earthy, not-too-sweet taste, one of the things I love about Kuma is that they only use raw, organic ingredients. If you enjoy turmeric in cooking, a golden milk latte from time to time, or even if you’ve never tried turmeric before, chances are you’ll love this unique liqueur! I’ve teamed up with Kuma to create this tasty, tropical Kuma-quat.



  • 1 oz Kuma Turmeric Liqueur
  • 2 oz coconut water
  • 3/4 oz orange juice (I used a cara cara orange)
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz tamarind syrup

Add all ingredients plus a couple of basil leaves to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with basil leaves and a kumquat.
