The Story Behind The Turmeric Rickey

The Turmeric Rickey was made for summer. It combines London dry gin, lime juice, and soda water with Von Humboldt’s Turmeric Cordial, a new liqueur infused with turmeric, the wellness ingredient du jour.

Created by Steven Grasse, the mastermind behind Sailor Jerry and Hendrick's gin, Von Humboldt's turmeric spirit is easy-drinking enough to sip on over ice. Here, it adds a lovely, vegetal quality to a classic Gin Rickey. We gilded the lily with a slice of cucumber, though a wedge of your juiced lime would also do the trick.

Ingredients In The Turmeric Rickey:

  • 2 ounces Von Humboldt’s Turmeric cordial
  • 1/2 ounce London dry gin, such as Plymouth
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Club soda to top
  • Cucumber garnish (optional)

Turmeric Rickey Directions:

  1. Combine lime juice, gin, and cordial in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake to combine and chill.
  3. Pour into a Collins glass with ice, and add soda to top.
  4. Garnish with a cucumber sliced vertically using a mandoline or a steady hand.
