Turmeric Bloody Mary

Sommer Pyne

This week for Cocktail Hour we have the lovely Erica from @naturallynourishedlondon who has created a delicious Bloody Mary with a little healthy twist. Head over to IGTV to meet Erica and see our cocktail demonstration. Over to you Erica….

Who loves a Bloody Mary with brunch? I do! This cocktail is a little twist on the classic Bloody Mary! I’ve opted for gin in place of vodka and added an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant hit with a touch of turmeric. The fresh horseradish gives it an extra kick and being part of the cruciferous family it’ll help your liver along with detoxification!

Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, another potent antioxidant and anti-aging nutrient. Cocktails that also hold some nutritional value…. I’m in! Enjoy!
