I love the feeling of being hydrated, but sometimes water needs something – or a whole list of somethings. Here is my absolute favorite concoction:
I use a 1-quart Mason jar for my glass.
Start with 2 cups water and add:
1/2 tsp turmeric*
1 Tbs honey (locally produced, raw)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper if you like heat (or more, as desired)
1 cup store bought or homemade Kombucha (RECIPE) or homemade Ginger Soda (RECIPE). Kombucha or Ginger Soda add a lovely fizz to your drink, and if you let it ferment a bit, it’ll give you a nice buzz (if you’re into that).
Using a Mason jar makes this project very easy to shake up! Just throw a lid on first.
Add ice! This is going to make your hot summer so cool and healthy.
*I usually put a full teaspoon of turmeric, and people tell me my drink tastes like a curry. So you decide if you want to add more than 1/2 teaspoon. Turmeric has amazing health benefits that you might want to check out, including (among many other things) working as well as Ibuprofen.
