THIS tummy warmer might be your new whiskey favorite, bringing the superfood benefits of turmeric-fueled “golden milk” to a yummy cocktail glass. This aids digestion and is anti-viral too.


1 1/2oz whiskey

1 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup (sub monk fruit or stevia for zero sugar)

1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream

1/8 teaspoon turmeric**

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon**

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger**

3oz hot water


Cinnamon stick (fresh is best, to get the most of cinnamon’s healing goodness!)


* Into a shaker tin, add whiskey, maple syrup (or sweetener of choice), heavy whipping cream and spices. Shake well.

* Pour all shaker ingredients into a mug, and top with hot water.

* Serve with cinnamon stick, for a deliciously healing “infusion stir stick” for the spices that settle on the bottom of the glass.

* Seasoning measurements are the minimum. For max flavor and benefits, we encourage you to liberally add more turmeric, cinnamon and ginger to taste.

* Stirring this spicy, cozy drink with a cinnamon stick brings a quiet joy you’ll want to repeat again and again. A perfect drink to combat flu season, packed with anti-inflammatory whiskey, turmeric and cinnamon.
