Created by food blogger Rachel Reuben for Numi Tea, this savory summer sip calls for two parts vodka mixed with one part turmeric tea-infused simple syrup and a half-part lemon juice. For the simple syrup, boil one cup of granulated sugar with a cup of water, and use the mixture to steep a bag of Numi Amber tea, along with a teaspoon each of coriander and ground or fresh ginger. Remove from heat and allow syrup to steep for 30 minutes to 2 hours. (Do you know The Calorie Count of All Your Favorite Cocktails?)
