Turmeric Toddy

Nothing says holiday season like a nice warm hot toddy.  But as we all know, alcohol can have an inflammatory effect on the body….so if you decide to imbibe this season, why not attempt to counteract some of these effects by using anti-inflammatory ingredients in your cocktails.  Here we reimagine the classic hot toddy by simply adding a dash of turmeric.  It adds another layer of spice and a nice glowing-golden color.



  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1tsp turmeric
  • ½ cup hot water
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • lemon twist for garnish (optional)



Build the cocktail in the following order: honey, lemon juice, turmeric.  Add the hot water and stir to dissolve honey. Then pour in bourbon and garnish with a lemon twist. Cheers!
