Tired of your simple margarita recipe? Let’s add a little spice! The Golden Turmeric Margarita recipe combines the freshest ingredients like – orange juice, ground turmeric, and your favorite tequila for a delicious libation. Plus, incorporating turmeric in your mixed drinks may add some health benefits like improving heart health and decreasing symptoms of depression and arthritis.
This anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredient is quite powerful with not only your health but also in taste. If you haven’t experienced the taste of turmeric before, the Golden Turmeric Margarita is the perfect excuse to do so!
Turmeric is very similar to ginger. To the palette, it can have quite a powerful taste. This spice is a tad peppery, bitter yet overall very earthy. That’s why it mixes incredibly well with citrus and other bright notes.
This ingredient makes the Golden Turmeric Margarita shine so much! It balances beautifully with tequila, orange juice, agave, and lime juice for a refreshingly tart and subtly spicy but slightly sweetened finish.
This may be one of the tastiest margs I’ve made. I love using the freshest ingredients for my cocktails and the addition of the citrus juices and ground turmeric create such a spectrum of flavor. See what I used below:
Margaritas may be one of my favorite cocktails, and the Golden Turmeric Margarita is so versatile that no matter how you make it it’s going to be a good one!
First, start by rimming your glass. Combine the salt, chili powder, and turmeric in a shallow dish. Then, coat the rim of your desired cocktail glass with lime juice (or agave for a sweeter taste) and submerge in the salt mixture until the rim is coated all around the glass.
Now it’s time to make the margarita! Add all cocktail ingredients – tequila, fresh lime juice, fresh orange juice, agave, ground turmeric to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Fill your prepared glass with fresh ice. Strain the margarita mixture into the glass. If desired, garnish with a lime round, citrus leaf, and orange slice. Enjoy and trust me when I say, you’ll end up wanting more than just one of these!
