“Turmeric really balances the sweetness of the other ingredients, and its spice complements the Ceylon cinnamon beautifully,” says Anna Maceda, the co-owner and bar manager of Grand Army Tavern in Portland, Oregon. “Turmeric also has a ton of health benefits thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, and I think a cocktail can be somewhat healthy, too.”

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1 1/2 ounces grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce cinnamon syrup
  • 1/4 ounce turmeric tea*
  • Soda water, to top
  • Garnish: grapefruit twist

Steps

  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice.

  3. Top with the soda water.

  4. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

*Turmeric tea: Add 1 tsp ground turmeric powder and 2 cups water to a medium pan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, then strain.
