Ingredients

  • 4-5 inch piece of ginger peeled
  • 4-5 inch piece of turmeric peeled
  • 3 large lemons juiced
  • 1 dried clove or ½ teaspoon dried clove
  • 1 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 64 ounces club soda or sparkling water
  • fresh mint optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by prepping your fresh ingredients: peel ginger and turmeric and cut into one-inch pieces. Juice lemons.

  2. Add ginger, turmeric, lemon juice, clove, honey, and water to a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir to combine.

  3. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes. Liquid should be reduced, darkened, and slightly thickened. Strain into a small, sealable container.

  4. To make soda, add two tablespoons of syrup and 8 ounces of club soda to a glass over ice. Stir gently to combine and add a sprig of mint, if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • For extra immune support, cook three cloves of fresh garlic with the syrup mixture.
  • Powdered turmeric can work in place of fresh turmeric. Use just one third the amount if using powedered.
  • Refrigerate extra syrup in a tightly closed jar or bottle. Keeps for about two weeks.
