Blueberry buzz

Why not enjoy a drink on the patio that helps with your immune system as well as relax you and looks like a world class drink! This drink is made with organic turmeric made into a syrup and added to either soda water, or alcohol. I usually make the turmeric syrup and store it in the fridge and use as I need it.

All you need is blueberries, soda water, limes, mint leaves, organic turmeric, organic cane sugar and water for a non-alcoholic drink. If you want to add alcohol, add dry gin and elderflower liqueur.

To make the turmeric syrup: add 1 cup organic cane sugar to 1 cup water and bring to boil for 5 minutes. Take pan off the heat and stir in the turmeric. Set aside for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Store in a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use.

Muddle 5 of the blueberries and mint in a cocktail shaker. Add lime juice, turmeric syrup, (if using alcohol, add gin and elderflower liqueur) and ice and gently shake all ingredients. Pour into a Collins glass filled with ice. Top off with a lime wedge and blueberries on a skewer or cocktail pick.
