ABOUT THE LAZY SUNDAY COCKTAIL

 


“Turmeric really balances the sweetness of the other ingredients, and its spice complements the Ceylon cinnamon beautifully,” says Anna Maceda, the co-owner and bar manager of Grand Army Tavern in Portland, Ore. “Turmeric also has a ton of health benefits thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, and I think a cocktail can be somewhat healthy, too.”
