Turmeric has long been an essential ingredient in many cultures’ cuisine, but lately people have been embracing it for its purported health benefits. Believed to act as an anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant, the rhizome has become one of 2017’s biggest food trends. Never ones to miss a moment, Austin restaurants are offering their own takes.
The Southwestern mini-chain is known for their array of salads, but we love them for their botanical cocktails. Grab one of their turmeric mimosas for brunch, or their Fiery Lion, a perfect dinner pre-game made with orange juice, turmeric root, Plymouth gin, Grand Marnier, and a splash of grenadine. After dinner, pair their almond milk-based Golden Nog with their lemon cheesecake.
