Author and blogger Nik Sharma proves mocktails have moved far beyond Shirley Temple drinks. His take features trendy turmeric with fresh pineapple juice and bubbles from sparkling water for a refreshing tropical drink.




  • For turmeric simple syrup: In a small saucepan bring sugar, 1/2 cup water, and turmeric slices to boiling over medium-high, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Let steep 30 minutes. Discard turmeric. Transfer syrup to a storage container; chill up to 1 week.

  • In a pitcher combine turmeric syrup and pineapple juice. For each serving, pour 2/3 cup concentrate over ice. Top with sparkling water. Makes 4 drinks.


You can prepare the turmeric simple syrup ahead of time and let it chill in the refrigerator before ready to use.


To make it a cocktail, add 1 cup gin to the turmeric-pineapple concentrate.
