Bees Knees + Turmeric

Bees Knees + Turmeric

So my kitchen is all packed up. Boxes full of spices, a few neatly wrapped fancy dishes and a bag full of pots and pans that have been clanging around in the back of my car for a few days. Whew! Never want to move again! It’ll take a while to set up the new kitchen – get that ideal workflow going again, but I’ll be back in the groove soon! In the meantime I’m celebrating / unwinding with a drink. This cocktail has been my go-to lately. The bright golden concoction competes for attention with the colors of the season. With hints of fresh herb it’s subtly sweet, smooth and refreshing. Cheers my friends!

    I’m a big fan of cocktails that use some healthy ingredients (to even things out!) and gin is probably my favourite. Good thing I have all these ingredients on hand ;) Moving is the worst, but hopefully the unpacking is quick and easy for you!
