Makes two 2 oz shots
1/2 cup coconut water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon or orange juice (about 1/2 lemon or 1/4 orange)
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (this improves the absorption of turmeric)
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup – optional
Combine all ingredients in glass or jar and whisk until smooth. I use a milk frother. Serve. It is best to drink quickly as spices will settle at bottom.
Notes: I add 1 star anise that has been pulverized in a mortar and pestle. This spice is an ingredient used in Tamiflu vaccine. It is my “go-to” spice when I start feeling under the weather.
