Skylark Cocktails at Home

January 20, 2017

Cheers to a healthy 2017! Known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, turmeric is a bright golden spice that adds a little health kick to some of our favorite drinks. Head of Beverage Johnny Swet shared his recipe for a Fort Knox with a turmeric honey twist -  try it at home and feel good about having an extra drink this week! 

 

TURMERIC HONEY SYRUP

1.5 c honey

0.5 c boiling water

1 tb turmeric

In a small saucepan, combine the honey, water, turmeric. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using. Will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
