For the Turmeric Ginger Simple Syrup
  • 2 ounces fresh ginger peeled and coarsely shredded
  • 1/2 ounce fresh turmeric about 2-inches, peeled and finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
For the Turmeric Ginger Lemonade
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 2 pounds of lemons; save 1 lemon for garnish
  • 2/3 cup turmeric ginger simple syrup
  • 2 cups seltzer
  • 1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and sliced paper thin
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  1. To make the syrup, set a medium, nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, combine ginger, turmeric, and water. Bring to a gently bubbling simmer, then turn heat to low and steep 10 minutes. Swirl in honey and continue cooking over low heat for 20 minutes more.
  2. With a fine mesh strainer, strain into a jar or bottle, pressing pulp to extract all the juices (and flavor). Syrup will keep well covered in the fridge for a month. Makes about 1 cup.
  3. To make turmeric ginger lemonade, juice lemons, and strain out seeds and pulp. Measure 2 cups into an ice-filled pitcher and stir in 2/3 cup simple syrup. Add 5 sliced jalapenos and 4 lemon slices. Top off with 2 cups seltzer. Stir mixture and taste. If desired, add more simple syrup to taste.
  4. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with sliced jalapenos and lemons. Serve immediately.
