Turmeric Tommies

 This is the first of the cocktail recipes from my recent article on MASTI.  

Turmeric Tommies is a nod to the margarita from Tommy’s, an acclaimed Mexican restaurant in San Francisco. MASTI’s twist includes tequila, mescal, lime juice, and a beautiful vibrant yellow syrup made out of five spices. Black cardamom, licorice, coriander seeds, star anise and turmeric – are all spices typically found in kitchens across India and make their way into the syrup and into  our cocktail.

The Ingredients:
  • 40 ml Don Patròn Tequila
  • 10 ml Mezcal
  • 30 ml Fresh Lime Juice
  • 20 ml 5 Spiced Syrup – a sugar syrup infused with black cardamom, licorice, coriander seeds, star anise, and turmeric
  • For the Garnish: Black Salt Rim, Dry Lime, Cardamom Leaf on the stem
The Method

We start by painting half the rim of our glass with agave syrup before dipping it into black volcanic salt. It’s the perfect balance between salty and sweet.

We measure our lime juice and pour it into the shaker, followed by our five-spice syrup. I take a whiff – I could almost swear I’m on the streets of Mumbai!
