Golden Slumbers

Chai-onara! Tea you later! Kiss your chamomile goodbye and embrace a new nightcap. Turmeric is the superstar spice of the moment that wards off inflation, fights pain and arthritis, detoxes the blood, cleanses the liver, and provides a great immunity boost. And one of the most popular ways to enjoy these benefits is by the glassful. A drink called “golden milk” is rocking the Whole Foods world.

Simple to make and with an earthy, sweet and spicy taste like that of chai, golden milk is the ideal evening elixir you can feel good about drinking.

Here’s how to make it:

Simply combine 1 cup almond or coconut milk with 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1/4 teaspoon cardamom, a pinch of black pepper, and a teaspoon of honey. Whisk, strain, heat, and enjoy! Some recipes also recommend simmering the mixture pre-strain to lessen the bitter bite. You can also add a dash of cinnamon, use a frother to mimic a latte-like taste, or serve it cold over ice.

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 7

It’s that time again (and I don’t just mean the liquor-loving blues-be-gone Boozy Tuesday to ease your mid-week melancholia). Back-to-school season. From crayons to calculus, brown bag lunches to books, backpacks, and binders, it’s enough overwhelm to send anyone to the bar. So, to ease your educational woes, this week’s creative cocktail is a tipsy toast to celebrate the start of a new semester…considering, of course, you’re of the legal age.

With autumn in toe and those lazy, hazy days of summer facing their finality, it seems high time for a hiatus of the vodka variety. In short, it’s a little less than ladylike to be lifting tropical toasts in any other season but summer. So until the days of sunscreen and neoprene return in nine months, Boozy Tuesday will no longer be a weekly feature at SxS…with the occasional exception of an eggnog elixir or spicy icy cider every now and again.

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 6

large

This week’s Tuesday toast falls right at the peak of a mega meteor marathon, making it just the stellar spectacle that begs for some booze . The early weeks of August are an astronomer’s delight as the annual Perseid Meteor Shower falls into orbit, scattering shooting stars by the bounty. A pitcher of Stargazer’s Sangria and the appropriate cinema, sounds, and styles for an evening under the stars are certainly in order…the perfect celebration of sunmer’s dwindling days. So craft this cocktail, get cozy, and make a multitude of wishes on the surplus of shooting stars you’ll spot overhead.
