turmeric-drink

Turmeric is a yellow-orange plant root with several health benefits, from easing inflammation to helping increase circulation to protect the heart and brain. This is one of my favorite warm drinks to have in the evening before bed, or even to replace a cup of coffee in the morning.

1 cup of Silk Soy (I like vanilla but original is good too)
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 TBL ground ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Maple syrup to taste (1 TBL works for me)

Add all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium to high heat and whisk continuously until combined and mixture is warm to your liking. Never allow to boil. This process is just a few minutes to get to a desirable warm drinking temp. Pour into a mug and enjoy (pour over sink to avoid counter-top spills)!

I do like to top off my drink with dairy-free whipped topping. Soya Too makes a good one in a can.

Makes 1 cup

triple sec (1:4 ratio of triple sec to champagne)
splash of cranberry juice (for color)
Champagne

In a champagne flute, pour in 1:4 ratio of triple sec, a splash of cranberry juice for color and then top off with champagne. It’s best to pour mixers in first, then finish off with champagne to avoid fizzy overflow.

Poinsettia is the perfect champagne cocktail for a brunch or a holiday gathering.

Barnes & Noble

9 cups water
2 cups sugar
4 cups brandy
1 12oz can frozen orange juice
1 12oz can frozen lemonade
1 tsp instant tea

In a large pot, add sugar to 7 cups boiling water. Boil and stir until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. In a small pot, boil remaining 2 cups of water and add in instant tea. Stir until dissolved. Combine both water mixtures, then add in frozen orange juice and frozen lemonade and stir and break up to dissolve all frozen pieces. Add in brandy and mix to combine.  Pour mixture in a large tupperware container and freeze for 24 hours. This can be made weeks in advance and kept frozen.

In a highball glass, serve 2 scoops of frozen mixture with 7up, sprite or club soda. Stir and garnish with fresh mint or maraschino cherries. Drink should be slushy, so serve with a short straw.
