What does a turmeric shot taste like?

This recipe calls for 4 simple ingredients and each provides a unique flavor profile.

The ingredients are:

  1. Turmeric. Turmeric is known for its earthy, musky, and slightly bitter flavor. It also has a beautiful orange-brown color making your dishes stunning to look at!
  2. Coconut water. Coconut water has a mild taste with an ever-so-slight sweetness.
  3. Black pepper. This adds a slightly firey tang to the shot. Black pepper also contains a compound called piperine, which helps to increase the rate at which turmeric is absorbed in the body so pairing the two is highly beneficial.
  4. Lemon. Lemon provides a sour and acidic flavor to the shot.

Combining all four together helps balance each flavor profile making the shot tolerable to consume. If you find it hard to take as is feel free to add it to a cold or warm drink. Give it a good stir and enjoy! I personally like to add it to hot water with a squeeze of honey and it becomes the perfect, healing drink.
