Turmeric and Tonic

golden drink with ice
Don't be fooled by how straightforward this recipe is - the drink is delicious! Almost can't believe I haven't done it before. You get the sweet bitterness of the tonic combined with a delicate hum of spice and warmth from the turmeric. Highly recommended this drink for the weekend!


4 ice cubes
1/4 tsp ground turmeric
Tonic water
Lemon juice
Slices of lemon to garnish


Add the ice cubes and turmeric to a tall glass
Pour over the tonic water and lemon juice and stir well
Decorate with the lemon slice

    How much lemon juice do you use? Seems a little goes a long way….

    Turmeric is so good for you too. I’ll have to try this when I get home. I’m not sure whether other countries have diet tonic water, but we do in Australia so an added benefit of no sugar.
