- 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- One teaspoon ground turmeric (or use a 1-inch piece of fresh turmeric, peeled and grated)
- Juice of 1-2 lemons (adjust to taste)
- 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
- 2 cups water
Prepare the Ingredients:
Peel and grate the fresh ginger. If you’re using fresh turmeric, peel and grind it as well.
Juice the lemons to get fresh lemon juice.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
In a heat-resistant bowl or pitcher, combine the grated ginger, ground turmeric (or fresh turmeric), lemon juice, and honey or maple syrup.
Pour Hot Water:
Pour the boiling water over the ginger and turmeric mixture. Stir well to combine.
Allow the mixture to steep for about 10-15 minutes. This allows the flavors to infuse into the water.
After steeping, strain the liquid to remove the grated ginger and turmeric. You can use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth for this.
Let the liquid cool to a comfortable drinking temperature.
Pour the wellness shot into small shot glasses or small jars.
