This Turmeric Cocktail Will Make Your Skin Glow & It's Pure Fall Magic
With the holidays fast approaching and fall cocooning us in her cozy embrace, it's natural to want to reach for a cocktail every now and then. Coming together and cultivating community is definitely an important wellness practice—and if you toss in a few cocktails that fall on the healthy-ish side, all the better. This one is designed to make your skin glow, with vitamin C-rich cranberries and oranges that help your skin synthesize collagen, and turmeric and ginger to fight inflammation as you sip. It tastes like the harvest in a glass, with a warmth from the spices and the seasonal cranberries (but don't worry, you can use frozen!). We recommend using a high-quality, gluten-free vodka to keep the health benefits and flavor at their peak (we tested this with Tito's, one of our favorites in the test kitchen).
