Turmeric Ginger Gin

So a few of you know me in real life, but for those who don’t, I make organic skin care products for a living. The product I’m best known for combines turmeric and tangerine, so when I saw those darling satsuma tangerines with the leaves still attached at Whole Foods, I was inspired to make a corresponding cocktail.

I made a mess with the ginger sugar and ended up covering the entire side of the glass with the stuff, but it was delicious so I’ll pretend that was intentional. 

Turmeric Ginger Gin
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 oz turmeric-infused gin
  • .5 oz grapefruit juice
  • .5 oz tangerine juice
  • Ginger beer

Add all but the final ingredient to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice and rimmed with ginger sugar, top with ginger beer.

2 tbsp sugar mixed with 1 tsp ground ginger
